Where do you fit in the story, and how can you make yourself heard? This workshop will show you how to take your ideas and opinions and craft them into a compelling piece, whether that be a short, sharp article, or a longer, more personal essay. Over one intensive day, you’ll learn how to go from basic concept, through to choosing structure, how to polish up a draft, and pitch the final work.

You will learn:

  • How to pitch your work
  • Self-editing
  • The differences and overlap between opinion pieces and personal essays
  • Different nonfiction structures
  • How to take an idea and present it in its strongest and most convincing format

This workshop is presented in partnership with Kill Your Darlings and Yarra Valley Writers Festival as part of the KYD Regional Victorian Writers Program.
