This is an event from the May 2016 Festival.

Code: W27  |  Type: Workshops   |  Genres: Fiction

Your novel-in-progress might have a fine voice and terrific characters, but what on earth is going to happen? A surprising and riveting plot is one of the best ways to keep your reader turning the pages. Plot shouldn’t be a creative afterthought: it’s an intrinsic part of your manuscript and interconnects with theme, pace, character development and voice. Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, this practical workshop with award-winning novelist Toni Jordan will have your characters twisting and turning.

Capacity: 16

With thanks to NYU Sydney.

Sunday 22 May 2016 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Science House, NYU Sydney, 157 - 161 Gloucester Street, Sydney
