About this Event

There is more to storytelling than just spilling your imagination onto the page.

There's structure. What is the three-act structure? How does structure compartmentalise a story?

There's plotting and subplotting. And characters. What makes for an interesting character? What is an arc? What do readers expect from a character? What is pacing? What makes prose engaging? What are the pitfalls of writing? What do you need to look out for?

Whatever the story you want to tell, whatever the genre, whatever the form, you will learn everything you need to know to hit the ground running and start writing that story you've always wanted to write.

Your facilitator is Les Zigomanis. His first novel, Just Another Week in Suburbia (Pantera Press 2017), explores the questions of trust, fidelity, and how well you can ever truly know another person. It was originally shortlisted for the 2013 Hachette Manuscript Development Program, and has been described by 2017 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards Winner Ryan O’Neill as a ‘hugely enjoyable novel.’

His new novel, August Falling (Pantera Press 2018) is a story about unconditional acceptance, reclaiming the past, and finding the best version of ourselves so we can move forward into the future.

As ‘Lazaros Zigomanis’, he wrote the YA novel Pride, a story about dreams, coming of age, community, love, and racism. It has been described by best-selling Young Adult author George Ivanoff as ‘an extraordinary book.’

His latest Lazaros Zigomanis book, a novella entitled The Shadow in the Wind, tells the story of six-year-old Keene, struggling to understand his mother’s terminal illness, and who goes into the Australian bush with only his Border Collie Bunch in tow to recover a pendant he believes will provide a cure.
