Description

Thriller Writing

Thrilling stories. What are they? Where do you find them? How do you write them? A good thrilling story is something worth telling that the reader cannot put down. Stories are the creative conversion of life itself into a more powerful, clearer, more meaningful experience, and the writer’s goal is to create a good story well told. This workshop will cover what makes these good stories thrilling.

This workshop is free to participants thanks to the generous support of Townsville City Council.

Format

A workshop for intermediate and emerging writers
