Your Novel Project



Graeme Simsion




You can sit at the computer waiting for the drops of blood to form. Or you can get organised and get the job done, stage by stage, focusing on one thing at a time, making progress every day. This course is about the second option. Graeme Simsion will share the process and techniques which have made him one of Australia’s bestselling novelists.
