Get a grasp of the fundamentals and wrangle your manuscript into shape as you take A Novel Journey in 2016.
A collection of expert tutors including Robyn Mundy, Terry Whitebeach, Toni Jordan and Cameron Hindrum will take you on the journey, covering all the major aspects of writing a novel over nine monthly sessions.
Beginning with structure, narrative, character and setting, we will get your story flowing ready for a mid-course full day plotting workshop with Melbourne-based author Toni Jordan. Then we will move towards finessing your work with sessions on style, rhythm and pace, dialogue and polishing your manuscript. Our final sessions will be devoted to getting your manuscript ready to send to publishers, with an industry expert who can share their tips and hints.
There will be opportunities for participants to network during the course as well. And if you sign up for the whole course you will receive a special discount for our three Writers’ Toolbox weekends with agents, publishers and social media experts.
Sessions are held on Sunday mornings at the Moonah Arts Centre.
