Register Now for this two day Writers Practice workshop in Kāpiti Join Wellington novelist Sue Orr for this two-day workshop, exploring ways in which fiction can be grafted onto the canvas of non-fictional life to create exciting contemporary narrative. Writers will engage with each other to kickstart their fiction, then turn to the real world for inspiration allowing the work take flight. This course is for both novice and experienced fiction writers keen to experiment with writing fiction against a real life landscape. You will be writing a fictional scene based on another person’s profound experience, then developing that scene by grafting it on to a true-life landscape. You will leave the second workshop with the solid beginning of a unique fictional story set against a real, recognisable landscape – ready for you to develop further into either short or long form story. Limit of 12 participants. Please fill out this form to apply for a scholarship If we are unable to meet in person due to raised alert levels, then this workshop will be offered online.
