WRITERS' RESOLUTION

with Eileen Herbert-Goodall

ATTENDEES MUST ABIDE BY COVID-SAFE GUIDELINES

Prepare for this face-to-face workshop by reading State Library of Queensland's Conditions of Entry section below in accordance with Queensland Health guidelines.

Reach your 2021 goals by crafting your own writer's plan. See that New Years resolution to the end!

As a writer, it can be difficult to devise an overarching plan comprised of achievable and measurable creative outcomes – that’s why having a specific and time-based strategy can be so useful. Writer’s Resolution is designed to help you gain clarity around your individual writing goals – from completing a first draft, to polishing your work for submission and identifying publishing opportunities. Join author and writing educator, Dr Eileen Herbert-Goodall, to learn how to complete an individualised writing plan that revolves around an understanding of your targeted audience and suitable publishing pathways. Tap Eileen’s extensive experience in the literary industry and be well prepared for upcoming writing opportunities, competitions, and conferences. By helping you develop a tangible and exciting creative vision, this course will see you better equipped to bring your future writing goals to fruition.

Unavailable to make it in person? You can also watch this workshop via online live stream! Live stream tickets are available here.

Learning Outcomes:

Through individual activities, “one-on-one” speed interviews with other course participants, and plenty of practical discussion, you’ll develop a clear idea of how to do the following:

  • Craft a personalised and sustainable “drafting, polishing, and publishing” writer’s plan for the first half of 2021 (the knowledge acquired can then be re-visited in order to devise similar writing goals for the second half of the year).
  • Use practical brainstorming activities to inspire your creative writing sessions and enable you to stay connected with your craft.
  • Recognise “strategic” publishing opportunities (find appropriate outlets/publishers, journals, magazines based on an understanding of your writing genre, key audience, etc.).
  • Identify annual competitions, opportunities, and conferences to ensure your writing and publishing trajectory remains productive and sustainable.

Format:

This is a hybrid workshop with a focus on sustainability; it will be live streamed simultaneously to an online audience. It is a level 1 course, suitable for writers of all levels.

More information on program formats and level definitions can be found here.
