Writing Your Story

13 May 2023 at 2.30 pm - 20 May 2023 at 4.30 pm

$5

13 & 20 May, 2.30 PM – 4.30 PM

Writing a coherent narrative from life, whether focusing on personal experience or telling the tale of someone else, can be challenging because of life’s chaotic nature. Sometimes there’s too much material and it’s difficult to know where to begin and what to focus on. Other times the material you’re writing about has emotional ramifications that are troubling to confront.
In this two-part workshop with award-winning author A. R. Levett, you’ll discover how to care for yourself as you write, learn what it is you want to write about, the possibilities and challenges inherent in your subject material, how to thematically frame it, determine which people to focus on, how they change over the course of the narrative, where to end the manuscript, and how to use these elements to create a premise on which to further build the story you want to tell.

A. R. Levett B.A., B.Cmm.(Hons) is an award-winning, emerging WA author. He has published multiple poems and short stories in several Australian and international publications, such as Creatrix, Poetry for the Planet, and The Writers’ Magazine. His Story Mentoring services help writers hone their skills and turn their ideas into engaging stories. He has taught at Edith Cowan University and the Albany Summer School, served on the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre board of management, and runs regular creative writing classes at the Fellowship of Writers WA and Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre. He is writing a speculative-fiction series.

Proudly supported by City of Armadale.
