Writer's Workshop with Narrelle Harris
Sat. 3 December 2016, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm AEDT
How do you grab the reader from the first line? What are the different approaches to opening paragraphs?
In this workshop, participants compare a range of opening lines and discuss what makes a first sentence effective and engaging, discuss the different approaches and examine the difference between ‘active’ and ‘action’ as it applies to opening a story. Participants then have an opportunity to workshop their existing stories in progress or begin a new work as an exercise for discussion and feedback.
Participants should bring their own works in progress to workshop the opening of their story. If they don’t have a current WiP, keywords will be given to spark ideas for writing something.
Bookings are essential for these FREE events.
Bookings open 11 November.
