How do you create a story that grabs you by the throat? How do you hold on to that throat once you have it? Making your fiction compelling and powerful is the key to getting published. This workshop will look at the basics: great beginnings, taut scenes, and satisfying endings. It will teach you to bring shape to the mess on the page by using a few simple techniques, such as how and where to begin a story, how to pull readers through a scene, and how to string scenes into a plot. Take control of the elements of story and turn them to your advantage. Learn to write fiction that will not be forgotten.

Tasmanian Author Rohan Wilson is winner of the 2011 The Australian/Vogel's Literary Award for his novel The Roving Party. The novel has been described as ‘a surprisingly beautiful evocation of horror and brutality’ and ‘a meditation on the intricacies of human nature at its most raw’. It gets elbows-deep in the muck of our nation's early years, and knowingly courts objections from several quarters. It has been shortlised for the Victorian Premier’s Award for Literature, the Indie Book of the Year Award, and the Adelaide Festival Award. Recently, Rohan was named one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Novelists for 2012.
