Description

GENRECON 2019: FIGHT LIKE A GIRL MASTERCLASS

with Aiki Flinthart


This workshop will help you get your character’s blood pumping and make sure their action scenes are as realistic as possible.

Authentic fight scenes are a genre essential and Aiki can help you create scenes that feel, sound, taste and smell real. You’ll leave this workshop understanding the differences between how men and women fight and react, both during and after the event. There’ll be demonstration weapons including live-edge swords, wooden weapons, longbow, throwing knives and a toy plastic gun.

But remember – only Aiki handles the weapons!


About Aiki:

Aiki Flinthart is a Brisbane author of 11 speculative fiction novels, several short stories, and a non-fiction book Fight Like a Girl – writing fight scenes for female characters.

Her long fiction includes the best-selling 80AD series, the urban fantasy Ruadhan Sidhe Novels, and the sci-fantasy trilogy The Kalima Chronicles. Her short fiction has been shortlisted in the Aurealis Awards, and as a top-8 finalist in the USA Writers of the Future competition. She has also edited two anthologies. When not writing, she does hero-approved activities such as martial arts, archery, knife-throwing, and lute-playing.
