A strong novel usually takes a long time to write but can be devoured by readers in a single day. Join author Meg Mundell (The Trespassers and Black Glass) for a half-day workshop on sustaining momentum – for your readers and yourself. Learn a scene-by-scene approach to crafting a compelling and resonant novel, plus practical advice on forging ahead, staying on track, keeping the faith and completing your manuscript. Suitable for ‘plotters’ and ‘pantsers’.

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.
