Learn how to craft short true stories at this creative writing workshop in Sydney. At the end of the one-day writing course, you will know how to start writing short creative nonfiction based on your own life.

This class is great for beginners, as your instructor will teach you valuable skills to craft your memories into a short and true story. This fun class will allow you to embrace moments from your life and consider themes such as your family, your relationship or greatest passions.

The writing course will begin with looking at short creative nonfiction by significant authors including Tim Winton, Helen Garner and David Sedaris, and discussing the range of themes that emerge from their works. You will then move into brainstorming your own work and exploring techniques and styles that characterise engaging works of creative nonfiction.

After attending the writing course you will have:

·       Gained greater knowledge of creative nonfiction works

·       Learned how to look at everyday life as an opportunity for stories

·       An understanding of the techniques and styles that make engaging writing

·       Learned how to start writing your own creative nonfiction based on your own life
