What makes a book ‘unputdownable’? You may be surprised to learn that a strong plot isn’t the only answer.

In fact, careful shaping of many different story elements – including setting, characterisation, time frames, story patterns and more – can keep readers riveted and eager to turn the page. This masterclass will explore key techniques for intensifying narrative urgency, and show you how to apply them to increase the tension, momentum and power of your story. This masterclass is for established writers only, who have had at least one book published by a mainstream publisher, and a substantial project in the early- to mid-stages of development. Exclusive to Writers Victoria members.

Bookings for this event will open in mid-December 2017.
