This full-day workshop with Anna Krien, one of Australia’s most respected non-fiction writers (Act of Grace and Night Games), gives you the tools to tell your true story. Learn the fundamentals of long-form journalism – such as how to identify an original angle and develop your story, as well as research and interview techniques – and the craft of writing. Explore the form’s many guises from reportage and profile writing to memoir, and develop your own writing through various non-fiction exercises.

Sydney Writers’ Festival is sponsoring one place per workshop for writers who may not otherwise be able to participate. Find more information and an online application form here.
