Making fiction requires not just artistic vision, but also the practical carpentry of writing. In this workshop for emerging fiction writers, acclaimed novelist Kathryn Heyman will lead you through the crucial elements for structuring great fiction. By exploring the need for a bit of chaos in the writing process and giving you the tools to create structure and order, this workshop will send you back to your writing with a new vigour and a framework for your fiction.

On receipt of booking, we will ask you to confirm any special requirements, including access needs. While not all rooms in Science House are fully accessible, we are committed to ensuring that all participants can attend all workshops.

With thanks to NYU Sydney.
