Most writers aren’t born with magic in their fingertips. While a rare few have a natural instinct for storytelling, the rest of us need to hone our craft. This class introduces tools to sharpen your skills.
The best books casts a spell over readers, stealing them away from every day to let them live in someone else’s head. What are the tools and tricks used by wordwitches to create this magic? What should an apprentice wordsmith know?
This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of craft including story, characters and worldbuilding, voice and writing style.
Specific lessons include:
Deep Point of View
Character Goal, Motivation and Conflict
Movement and Flow
An orientation class for writers ready to enter competitions or mystified by their feedback.
Hours of Commitment
As an introductory course, it’s more about them choosing how deep they want to go. 1-2 hours a week would be plenty.
An internationally award-winning writer, Karina Coldrick started penning Empire Strikes Back fan fiction as a seven year-old and hasn’t stopped writing since.
Originally from Perth, Australia, she met her husband-to-be when studying in the UK. After deciding they needed castles more than sunshine, Karina and her family moved to the Emerald Isle where they now live near the river Shannon. She writes romantic fantasy and contemporary romance.
