Since she led her first Write Across New Zealand retreat in May 2018, Jesse Blackadder has spent five months on the world's most remote writing retreat, after being awarded the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship for the second time. At this retreat, Jesse will support writers to explore how to take the seed of an idea and develop it into a compelling narrative. Examining the structures that underpin successful books and stories, she will help you apply their principles to your own writing in original and exciting ways. Hands on exercises will help you find the best structure for your work, create memorable characters and vivid worlds, and polish your words and sentences until they glow. Jesse will also spend 20 minutes individual time with every participant during the workshop, giving you personal feedback on a sample of writing sent beforehand. FIND OUT MORE AT:
