Event Details

This writing workshop forms part of a series of monthly writing workshops run in partnership with the ACT Writers Centre . All workshops in this series are suitable for new and emerging writers over the age of 16+.

NaNoWriMo – the challenge where many fearless writers attempt to write a novel in a month – has almost come to a close. This workshop will focus on how to finish the first draft of your novel, and what’s next.

 This workshop will cover:

  • the tools you need to push yourself over the finish line– or at least to meet your goals;
  • how to approach writing the final chapters;
  • where to find motivation and inspiration when the target seems so far away; and
  • what to do after you’ve finished the first draft.

Karen Viggers is the award-winning internationally best-selling author of three novels: The Stranding, The Lightkeeper’s Wife and The Grass Castle. She writes contemporary fiction set in Australian landscapes, and her work explores connection with the bush, grief, loss, healing in nature, death, family, marriage and friendship. Her books also tackle contentious issues including choices at the end of life, whale rescue, kangaroo culling and scientific research on animals. Karen is a wildlife veterinarian who has worked and travelled in many remote parts of Australia. Her novels are known for their evocative portrayal of Australian people and landscapes.
