New course: "Fast Start to Creative Writing"

The Writing Workshop, Shop 9, The Italian Forum, 23 Norton Street Leichhardt.

Bernard Cohen will run a special introductory course on 3rd and 10th June, 10.00am - 1.00pm each day (total of 6 hours). Course cost is $210/$156 concession. This hands-on, exercise-based course will help you create and understand settings, events and characters for an extended work of fiction. Download a booking form here.

Bernard is the award-winning author of five novels and a children's picture book. His latest novel, The Antibiography of Robert F. Menzies, is shortlisted for the Russell Prize for Humour Writing (winner to be announced late June).

What we'll do
As with all our courses, these will be hands-on, and will comprise weekly discussions, tasks and readings. Based on our fun and inspiring children’s courses, but for grown-ups. Develop story-worlds, events and characters; test out new structures and techniques; instant feedback.

This will be the opportunity to try out your ideas in a supportive and fun environment, get words on the page and share with others. Writing books and stationery will be provided.

What it isn’t
One-to-one mentoring, editing, publishing – for these services, please contact mentors, editors or publishers.

Expressions of interest or contact us here. Please let us know if you prefer weekends or weekdays.
