Description

So You Want to Explore Narrative Voice

with KSP 2020 Emerging Writer-in-Residence Katie Hale


Costs: $35 members, $50 non-members. Online booking fees also apply. To avoid paying fees, please phone KSP directly to book and pay by debit/ credit card: 9294 1872.

This workshop is brought to you by the KSP Writers' Centre with support from the Shire of Mundaring. Tea and coffee provided.


Target Audience: adult writers with an existing interest in writing; the workshop will be run as a fiction-writing workshop, but poets & writers of creative non-fiction are also welcome.

In this workshop, Katie will explore the possibilities of narrative voice, and how this can shape our writing. The narrator leads us into the world of the story and shows us around. To create a narrative voice, we need to understand how the world looks, feels, smells, sounds and reacts to the narrator.

During the workshop, we will push our own creative boundaries by exploring unconventional angles of storytelling, and experiment with writing the non-human narrator – from animals to objects.

Parking is available in the brick driveway and in front of the hedge, also on the upper gravel level (to the right of the house) and along the street. Overflow parking can be found down the gravel driveway to the immediate left of the house (look for the No Thoroughfare sign); please drive down here slowly.
