Your Novel Project



Graeme Simsion




Hemingway said 'writing is easy, just sit down at the typewriters and bleed.' You can sit at the typewriter 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.

How to take control of your creativity

How to manage the writing life
