It’s the way in which characters see the world, often, that makes fiction compelling. In this workshop, you’ll hone your skills in observation and voice through examining influential writers and observational consciousness across contemporary literary fiction. You will also practice writing from characters’ perspectives and give and receive feedback on one another’s drafts.
When: Saturday 25 May, 10am-1pm
With: Jessica Zhan Mei Yu
