Event description

Description

Take a trip up, up, up the mountain, away from the bustle of everyday life, away from the noise and demands of the city, and into the beauty and tranquility of Kinglake.

Awaiting you is Karma, the retreat which’ll be your sanctuary this weekend. Rustic on first impressions, Karma offers luxurious accommodations, mouth-watering meals, and the opportunity to rest, recharge, and discover your innermost desires.

Participate in our writing retreat, whether your specialty is fiction (do you write short stories? or have a novel in the works?) or nonfiction (perhaps you want to write a memoir, a family or community history, a self-help or business book), and learn from a series of workshops that will feature theory and practice (yes, there’ll be writing exercises!) on the following:

  • Explore why we write: why do you want to write, and what stands in the way of finishing your project?

  • Elements of writing: join us as we look at voice, sense of character, sense of place, dialogue, POV, tense, the finer details and, in the case of nonfiction, how to deal with incorporating real people and sensitive truths

  • Structure, Plot, and Content: looking at how you break down structure, explore the use of plot, character arcs, what do you and don’t you include, and how do you transcend those emotional barriers and get deep into authentic writing

  • Workshopping: workshopping an excerpt from your writing, including a professional edit and assessment of the excerpt from one of our renowned editors

  • Prose: getting into the nitty gritty of writing, and being educated on such things as filters, tautologies, expletive constructions, show don’t tell, exposition, and more!

  • Revising, Submitting, and Publishing: once your work is complete, how do you approach revision? How do you prepare for submitting? What are the differences between self-publishing and submitting to a commercial publisher?

  • The Wrap-up: a reflection on how to take everything you’ve learned and apply it.


This two-day program will transform your writing life. Join this small group at Karma Kinglake from 24–26 August 2018.

Your story is going to grow in ways that you cannot imagine and your life will open up to the unexpected.

You will develop and grow as a writer in ways you never could’ve possibly imagined.


This program is all-inclusive (prices include GST): $1,395
