In this one-day workshop, acclaimed novelist Laura Bloom will explore the principles of three-act-structure and character transformation. Participants will learn how to apply these concepts to their own work in order to create more satisfying, even magical, experiences for their readers.
While many writers are unconsciously aware of these concepts, there comes a point in any writer’s practice where something isn’t working and that’s when these techniques can make all the difference.
When applied in the right way, at the right stage, doing the work to make sure these elements are in place and acting as they should creates a more satisfying experience for the reader – and also the writer.
Through class discussion and short writing exercises, participants will learn how to identify and strengthen these elements in their own writing, using examples from fiction, fairy tales, and personal experience.
Laura Bloom writes novels for adults and children. Her work has been shortlisted for various literary awards and her latest novel The Cleanskin was described in The Australian as ‘a masterpiece of drama and characterisation.’ Her next novel The Women and The Girls will be published by Allen & Unwin in 2019.
