Join writer Sam George-Allen (Witches: What Women Do Together) for a half-day workshop that explores the nuts and bolts of researching for creative non-fiction – be it long-form journalism, memoir or biography. You’ll learn how to find and approach appropriate sources, get tips on interviewing sensitively and efficiently, learn how to seamlessly integrate your research into your work, and find out where to dig up the little-known morsels that will bring your piece to life.
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.
