Event description

Description

Get your story started

Begin your project with Amie and develop a framework you can use to generate story after story. In this workshop, Amie will guide you through putting together the elements of your novel or short story - generating ideas and identifying your protagonist, inciting incident, setting, antagonist and supporting characters - and bringing depth to these elements to create a layered and compelling story. Leave this fun practical session with the bones of your next story down on the page and an insight into how authors do what they do.

Format

A workshop for intermediate and emerging writers
