There are still spots available for the writing workshop at this year’s National Convention, Au Contraire 3.
Keeping it real – with Anna Mackenzie.
Saturday 3 June, at Au Contraire 3.
How do you ensure your imagined world is compelling? Avoid being derivative? Create characters that readers will want to follow to the end of the universe?
This hands-on writing session/workshop looks at veracity and creating credible and compelling characters and worlds. This session is ideal both for beginners and for more experienced writers, those who are either in the midst of something or ready to start something new.
Anna Mackenzie’s students have enjoyed success in New Zealand and abroad. Sharpen your pens and polish your keyboards for this intensive two-hour session with one of New Zealand’s leading YA writers.
Saturday 9-11am. Attendance strictly limited to 15 people. Emerging and experienced writers welcome.
Cost: $25 (in addition to Au Contraire 2016 registration). Register by email to [email protected].
