Description

Workshop with Guy Salvidge, KSP Writer-in-Residence Alumni

Saturday 28 July 2018, 3.00-5.00pm

$35 KSP and WAWU members, $50 others

This workshop as part of our 'So You Want To...' series is brought to you by the KSP Writers' Centre with support from the Shire of Mundaring as part of the 2018 National Year of Lifelong Learning. Tea and coffee provided.


So You Want To ... Conquer Competitions

Join WA author Guy Salvidge as we navigate the perilous and occasionally bountiful seas of Australian and international writing competitions. Learn the ropes of competition guidelines, deadlines, simultaneous submissions, shortlists and more. Discover hidden treasure across the globe, from the largest and most prestigious to the smallest and most regional of contests. This workshop will be bulging with hints, tips and tricks from the lips of a grizzled seadog, in which you'll learn to win or to die trying.
