Creative Writing with Sandy Curtis Deep Characterisation All Day Masterclass

Are your characters two-dimensional, or worse, one-dimensional? Will readers care enough about them to want to keep reading their story? This Masterclass will show you how to flesh out your characters and give them the depth they need to 'come alive' for readers.

Whether you are writing crime, romance, or general fiction, you need to capture a reader’s interest and keep them enthralled to the final, exciting word. Through this hand on Masterclass, Sandy will pass on the knowledge she has gained through her writing career Sandy Curtis: With six novels published and eight years organising WriteFest, the Bundaberg writers’ festival, Sandy has the industry knowledge and experience that enables her to help aspiring writers. Her novels have been nominees in the Ned Kelly Crime Awards, and two have been finalists in the mainstream section of the Romantic Book of the Year Award. Her short stories have won awards and been published in leading magazines. She has presented many writing workshops, given library talks, been a panellist at writers’ festivals, written articles and columns for magazines and newspapers, and undertaken editorial consultations for the Queensland Writers Centre. Her seventh novel, Grievous Harm, was released in October 2012.

Additional: Numbers strictly limited to 16 participants, and suitable for Adults. Participants are expected to have done some writing. This Masterclass is NOT for people who are just ‘thinking’ about writing.
