Conflict workshop is sure to get sparks flying for writers
Tuesday, 14 June 2011
Whether you are a thriller, romance or fantasy fiction writer; whether you are writing novels, short stories or for the big screen—or even if creative non-fiction is your genre—it will be the strength of your story's conflicts that keep readers on the edge of their seats and turning the pages.
Exactly how you go about creating and developing the conflict in your writing is the subject of a writers’ workshop presented by Kevin Price at the Peter Cowan Writers Centre on Saturday July 16th.
"When it comes to story, readers are fascinated by how well a character manages in the face of adversity," Kevin Price says. "Understanding how to generate complex levels of antagonism is one of the most important keys to excellent story writing, irrespective of the genre a writer is working in."
Kevin Price, a writer for over 20 years, considers himself a student of story. A teacher of storycraft in more than 15 leading Western Australian schools and writing centres since 2005, he has helped over 300 young authors develop their skills and become published. His workshops are entertaining, dynamic and instructive.
"This workshop will offer an advanced level of engagement for all writers, both experienced and novice," Kevin Price explains. "We will explore a range of theories of antagonism, leading to a practical model of how to build a dynamic web of conflict driven by the characters and the events of the story. The method will not only enrich participants' work, but it will also help their development as writers."
The workshop is open to writers of all ages and levels of experience. For further details please contact the Peter Cowan Writers Centre on 9301 2282 or visit the Peter Cowan Writers Centre website.
