Creative Writing - Fiction Fundamentals Workshop Week 4
Wed. 21 June 2017, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm ACST
This is the fourth of six workshops covering the fundamental building blocks of writing fiction. Writing is a craft, and these are your tools. Each workshop will be a mix of theory and participant exercises.
This beginner to intermediate course is designed to allow participants to attend all six workshops, or just a few. The benefit of attending all six is that you'll get a holistic overview of what goes into writing a novel or short story. To do this well, you need an excellent grasp of all the tools covered. However, if you've done some workshops already and only want to brush up on a few topics, that's fine too.
Dialogue — great dialogue isn't speech, it's stylised and serves the dual purposes of showing character traits and advancing your story. This will show you how to punctuate dialogue, use correct "speech tags", apply "beats" and distinguish your character's voices.
Setting—- use the five senses to create your own story world.
