January 2012:

  • McGregor Summer School – CREATIVE WRITING WITH SANDY CURTIS

Whether writing crime, romance or general fiction, the key to a great story is its ability to capture a reader’s interest and to keep them enthralled right up to the final, exciting word.

Award-winning Australian novelist, SANDY CURTIS will explore this concept and share her skills at an introductory to intermediate CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP. Topics covered will include characterisation; plotting; dialogue; show, don’t tell; creating suspense; novels and short stories; article writing; and editing.

Author of six suspense thrillers, each a ‘Ned Kelly Award’ nominee, and two ‘Romantic Book of the Year Award’ finalists, Sandy has the industry knowledge and experience to inspire writers of all levels.
