‘Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?’
― Mary Oliver
Over six sessions, we will write a complete story from beginning to end. Each week will include exercises to take you from dreaming and playing, to planning and outlining, through to writing a complete first draft of your short story.
The course will also help writers writing a larger work, such a memoir or novel, to develop structure and motivation.
Each session will focus on an aspect of the writing craft including:
– Character and plot and how they intersect
– Dialogue that reveals character
– Point of view, tense, plot and structure:
– The art of seeing. Finding wonder in the everyday
and bringing that into your writing life.
– Publication: sharing your work with the world
Macleay Island Progress Hall. Mondays 9.30am-12pm, July 30 to September 3.

Suitable for both beginners and experienced writers.

“I am so grateful for Natalie’s workshops. I found them incredibly helpful and instructive. She taught us some great tools for creating a story that I have continued to use and, through these, she gave me the belief that I could write. Receiving tips for writing from an expert was the aim of the workshops obviously but the overriding memory I have from all of them was one of huge fun and great energy. If you have the chance to go to a workshop with Natalie, please go and give your soul a real tonic; learn whilst being uplifted.” Emma Nyman, Ubud
