The Sunshine Coast Literary Association is hosting a new workshop – What makes a good story? – that will explore techniques to help writers make their good stories great.

The workshop will be held at Wallace House, 7 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on Saturday, 19 May from 9.30am to 1.30pm.

SCLA President, Bryan Ward said the workshop provided practical story writing tools and techniques and was designed for writers interested in creating gripping stories either for enjoyment or as a profession.

“These workshops are a great way for aspiring writers to start their journey into the wonderful world of literacy,” Bryan said.

“It’s an opportunity to meet other writers, develop skills for writing and get on-the-spot feedback and answers to your questions,” Bryan said.

Presenting the workshop is Jan Bentley, a published author, former columnist and has a MA in creative writing. She has tutored in a women’s prison, for local community groups and within the human resource and training and development industries.

The workshop will cover some theory but will focus mainly on idea generation and exploring story designs. This four-hour session is suitable for all writers from beginners to those more experienced. Participants can share ideas in a creative, supportive and learning environment.
