Creative Writing Stage 1 at the Australian Writers’ Centre

If you’re passionate about writing, Creative Writing Stage 1 will help you discover your unique storytelling skills.

Give your creativity a boost and learn the foundation techniques to write amazing fiction.

It doesn’t matter what stage you’re at with your writing. You may have written a lot in the past, or maybe nothing at all. Wherever you’re at, THIS course will help launch your new creative self.

Join me for a fun five-week online course, or a wonderful weekend at The Abbotsford Convent.

You will:

* Kick-start your writing process

* Discover how to create compelling characters

* Write powerful scenes

* Learn the right way to structure your story

Most importantly, you’ll have a new confidence in your abilities, inspiration from a fabulous creative community, and motivation to pursue your writing goals such as short stories or even a novel.
