Long Course: The Bones of a Story

Join Erina Reddan in this three day course.

Lots of people can write well; fewer can tell a gripping story that connects with people emotionally. It’s the writers who do both who change the world. This course sets you up to do that by providing you with the tools to figure out, in a fast-paced interactive way, the bones of your story. We investigate what makes a great ‘story’ and then apply these key principles to your idea, testing them to make sure your story works and developing a tight elevator pitch to prove it.

  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne 3000
  • With: Erina Reddan
