Words, ideas, characters, scenarios…. Do you constantly think about creating stories but not sure how to go about doing it? This course can definitely help! We will learn the ins and outs of creative writing - how to jump start your imagination, what to write, why not all ideas make for great stories, plus where to find an audience for your work. We’ll also discuss genres and markets, plus explore plotting, characters and structure - it’s a bootcamp so be prepared to write every lesson!

Learn from Award-winning Australian fiction author, Paula Roe, who will show you how to create your very own A3 storyboard for pain-free narrative plotting! You will gain clarity about your story and characters, main themes, key turning points, where the story is going and have lots of hands-on opportunities to work on your story. By the end of this workshop, you will walk away with a complete basic storyline of your novel plotted on an A3 storyboard for you to take home.

  • Paula Roe is a regular Borders Books bestseller and one of only five Australian authors who write for Harlequin Desire, a line published by Harlequin Enterprises, the biggest romance publisher in the world. Harlequin books go out to over 28 countries and are translated into 28 languages in 114 international markets on six continents. Before publication, Paula's writing won and placed in various contests, including Wisconsin Romance Writers Fabulous Five Silver Quill, Magnolia State Dixie First Chapter, Romance Writers of Australia's Emerald Award and the Valerie Parv Award.
