Artist, model, former Olympian: Casey Legler (Godspeed: A Memoir) knows how to work toward a professional goal. In this full-day workshop, develop your creative practice with help from the creative scaffolding Casey has applied to their own projects. While open to writers, the workshop encourages non-writers, artists and other professionals to attend. Expect to leave with a clearer structure of how to approach your own projects.

This year, Sydney Writers' Festival is sponsoring one place per workshop (20 spots across the week) for writers who otherwise may not have the access to participate. To be considered for a position, please complete an application form by 12 April. Selected participants will be notified by email from the week starting 15 April.
