Australian Muslim Writers Festival workshop: The Writers Toolbox



Demet Divaroren




Whether you’re mining the personal spaces within yourself or bringing fiction to life, the creative writing techniques that you need remain the same. This workshop will explore the basics of structure and character, and will take an in-depth look at imagery. You will learn how to hone your voice, or your character’s voice, to make it intimate and specific, drawing your reader into your story. Suitable for emerging writers, and for writers who want to improve their writing skills.
