Writing Workshop: The Craft of Georgette Heyer

Workshop

Kim Wilkins (Queensland) Georgette Heyer is much loved by readers for her characterisation, her humour, and her rollicking good pace. What can writers learn from Heyer by analysing her creative choices? This workshop will cover structural issues such as plot, pacing, and subplot as well as characterisation issues such as internalisation and supporting cast, to help participants develop their own writing toolkits, no matter what genre they write in. Please read Venetia before attending, as it will serve as the guide book for examples. £50 | £30 advance registration required https://www.ies.sas.ac.uk/ events/event/15595
