Are you a writer, or always wanted to write?
Raewyn Alexander’s fun, fast-paced, supportive creative writing workshop gives you tools to get more enjoyment from writing, improve skills, build confidence and overcome writer’s block. You’ll also discover how to get published.
The whole day workshop covers planning and writing stories, poetry techniques, using lists and diagrams, collaborative writing and creating flash fiction, (or short short stories). Lots of opportunity for discussion and advice, and – because there are often forgotten questions – Raewyn will answer participants’ questions for two weeks after the workshop, by email.
Cost for full day workshop:
Whau Residents $20 (Avondale, New Lynn, Kelston, New Windsor, Blockhouse Bay, Green Bay)
