So You Want to Shape your Writing

with KSP Emerging Writer-in-Residence Eugen Bacon


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.


Learn how to approach your writing with an editorial eye, taking the raw material and shaping it into a compelling narrative. Perfect for writers of all experience levels looking to improve their self-editing skills.

You will learn:
• Bugs - Getting rid of pesky words
• Thin canvas - Saying more with less
• Grumpy nanny – Shaping your characters
• Clipped - Tightening your dialogue
• Blinkers off - Finding new eyes.

To form something that feels right, the feeling right is an awareness that can be trained and developed. We don’t ‘just know’ – we learn to ride the shape of the text, to listen to its music, to successfully render a vision that is the work in its best form.

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.
