Writing Novellas

Join Mirandi Riwoe for this one-day online workshop.

Novellas are having a resurgence in popularity, but it’s surprisingly difficult to write with the economy required for a short book that leaves an impact – how do you decide what to include and exclude? This workshop will explain and explore the differences between novellas and other forms, assisting as you hone plots, characters and structures that work within the constraints of this form.


  • When: Sunday 8 October 2023, 10am-4pm
  • Where: Online
  • With: Mirandi Riwoe
