Workshop: Writing From a Child’s PerspectiveSun 12 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.
From To Kill A Mockingbird to Room, stories with young narrators at their centre can help us see the world in new and unexpected ways. In this special online workshop, Miles Franklin–winning Sofie Laguna—whose latest book Infinite Splendours starts off from the viewpoint of a young boy—guides you through the process of writing from a child’s perspective. She shows how to access an authentic point of view, how to solve challenges of plot, structure and pace with a strong central voice, and how to ensure your work is original and energised.
In partnership with Writers Victoria
