Workshop: Writing Successful Narrative Non-fictionSat 4 Sep, 10am
The Wheeler Centre, Conference Room
Award–winning cultural historian and author Maria Tumarkin leads a workshop on successfully navigating the challenges of non-fiction writing. Drawing from her creative process writing the critically acclaimed Axiomatic—a boundary-shifting fusion of thought, storytelling and reportage—she walks you through truthfully addressing ethical dilemmas, developing and staying true to your voice, integrating research without clunky insertions of background info, and problem-solving around the trickiest hurdles of your project.
In partnership with Writers Victoria
