The internet, computers and ebooks now infuse every part of reading and writing. In this practical workshop with Richard Cooke (US Correspondent and Contributing Editor, The Monthly), learn how to adjust your practice – and your thinking – to reflect this new reality and find success in the digital age of literature. With a focus on innovation, experimentation and the future of non-fiction, this workshop is best suited to writers looking for a new challenge.

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.
