About our workshop:

Never Just Description: Using Setting to Enhance Your Story (morning) , and Pathways to Publication (afternoon)

This workshop is ideal for writers who are focusing on writing setting and a sense of place in their works. A strong sense of place helps transport readers into the world created by a novel. Without it, readers can feel lost, frustrated, and the pleasure of reading is diminished. Angela will focus on how to bring a place to life and create an evocative sense of place without sacrificing plot or pace. Writers of all abilities welcome.

Tea and coffee available, BYO own lunch or head to nearby cafes for catering in our break time.

This workshop was made possible thanks to funding from the Mornington Peninsula Shire Creative Community Grant.
