The Craft of Writing: Drafting your first novel
Friday 17 November and Friday 24 November 6:30 to 8:45pm
Writing your first novel and need some help?
These two workshops will cover key aspects of novel writing relevant for work aimed at an adult, YA or a children’s audience. Learn about narrative structure, plot and character arcs, dialogue, point of view, voice, evoking mood, tone and landscape and how to “show, not tell”.

Anne Kayes won the 2016 Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon award with Tui Street Tales (published by Scholastic NZ), a story collection for 8-12 year olds, which was developed as her thesis in the Master of Creative Writing at AUT in 2014.
