Event description

Description

Writing Like a Wild Thing – a writing workshop for young people (age 10 +)

Scot will discuss with the students the idea of using personal narrative (our own stories) as a springboard into gripping fiction. Using the telling of real-life stories and brief timed-writing exercises, Scot will guide the students in the artful use of detail, showing emotion (rather than telling) and subduing the influences of their own internal editor to create strong personal voices on the page.



Scot Gardner

Scot Gardner has been writing for young people since last century. His books are mostly about misfits making peace with the world, death and love. He came to writing down a long winding path of careers including landscape gardening, massage and counselling, professional music, teaching, waiting tables and driving delivery trucks. Changing Gear is his eighteenth novel in as many years and his backlist includes award winning and internationally acclaimed books such as Burning Eddy, The Dead I Know and Sparrow. He’s a son and brother, father, stepfather, father-in-law, grandfather and husband with a bristling fascination for the natural world.
