Workshop: How to Fictionalise Your LifeSun 5 Sep, 2.30pm
This has changed from a face-to-face workshop to an online one. Detailed instructions for participants will be provided. Please note: This workshop is not included in the MWF Digital Pass.
How can your writing convincingly push beyond memoir to make compelling fiction inspired by real-life events and relationships? Join Kavita Bedford, the author of the critically acclaimed novel Friends & Dark Shapes, for an online workshop on how to fictionalise your life. She looks at literary devices, breaking down form and creating voice; how wrestling back a narrative can serve as a political act; and examples of modern writers who draw from stylised personal perspectives, including Rachel Cusk, Jenny Offill, and Bryan Washington.
In partnership with Writers Victoria
