  • Two-Day Writers' Bootcamp with Susan Breen

    In this special two-day writers’ bootcamp, celebrated American author and writing tutor Susan Breen (The Fiction Class) will guide through building character and plot ideas for your novel. With a mixture of short lectures, group activities and individual writing exercises, Breen will instruct on such things as point of view, setting, and character transformation, and how compelling plots are achieved through understanding your characters’ desires and stakes. The workshop culminates in the opportunity to share a short excerpt of your work for discussion with the rest of the class. Morning tea and lunch are provided on both days. Participants must be able to attend both days of the workshop.

    This workshop takes place on both Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February
