Writing Masterclass with Paula Morris, University of Auckland
Our focus in this two-hour seminar, designed for fiction writers at all levels, is narrative structure and character. It’s designed to help you work on your own novels—or even memoirs—over the summer.
We will draw on specific examples of character and structure, including an in-depth analysis of two novels. Please try to read these books before the seminar, if you can.

The class will include in-depth analysis of the way these books introduce and build character, and how character development works to form narrative structure. We’ll also address issues of point of view, tense, chronology, time scope, retrospect, back story, and use of scene/summary.
When: Sunday 20 December 2020 from 10:30am – 12:30pm
A Zoom link will be forwarded to you once you have registered.
Cost of the masterclass is $59.80 incl GST
