  • Masterclass: Plot Sydney

    A highly structured masterclass for published writers already working on a novel, or with one in mind. Ideal for writers of non-fiction wanting to make the leap into fiction, for short story writers wanting to write a novel, or for emerging novelists, this one day masterclass will focus on the skills and approaches particular to the novel. Using intensive writing exercises, you'll find your way to the heart of your novel, developing an understanding of character, story, style and – most importantly – structure. How does one create a character who will lead the novel? What are the crucial questions that you need to address? Group discussion, writing exercises focused tightly on your novel, laughter and the opportunity to really stretch yourself will characterise this course. At the end of the day, you will know what you need to make your novel really sing.

    Applicants will be asked to submit a brief outline of their writing history and their current fiction project.
