I am so excited to be a part of the Whitsunday Writers’ Festival 2013, which kicks off on Friday 12th July with my one day thriller writing workshop. So if you have ever wanted to try your hand at thriller writing and would like to enjoy a well- deserved long weekend away in the sunny and beautiful Whitsundays, then sign up for the Whitsunday Writers’ Festival. Follow this link for more details.
My workshop will be a hyper-intensive and fun class in the dynamic art of thriller writing. I will reveal techniques for choosing your story, developing plot, writing your critically important opening paragraph, creating pace and suspense, and bringing your characters to life, as well as share tips on getting published.
The festival director, Gloria Burley, has invited fascinating writers to the festival, including Dr. Tony Ayling, who has written about a dozen books on marine biology and will give an update on the Great Barrier Reef. Dr Anita Heiss is a member of the Wiradjuri nation of central New South Wales and is one of Australia’s most prolific and well-known authors of Aboriginal literature. Joyce Morgan has been a journalist for more than three decades and Conrad Walters has worked in the media for more than thirty years in the United States, where he won awards for investigative journalism. So if you would like to know more about writing fiction, non-fiction or features and news stories, you’ll find authors ready and able to help you.
Why not sign up and join me in paradise?
