Crafting Words - Trent Jamieson: You Will Fail - the business of writing
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
In store at Avid Reader Bookshop
Tickets available until 18 July 2020 10:00 AM
This workshop commences at 10.00am.
A cautionary tale, a love story, a workshop for the broken-hearted and the starry eyed, a tale about an old man and a fish.
A novel is the iceberg that sits above the surface, the bulk of it (the work, the research, the typing and typing) is hidden. So is a writing career. You rarely see the failures.
You can control your writing. You can produce the best work that you can. But the business of writing is another thing altogether.
Trent will take you through the peaks and troughs of a writing career, and a few things that you can do to make things feel better even in the worst of times, and a few things that might mean you don’t end up starving.
Trent Jamieson is a teacher, bookseller and writer of science fiction and fantasy, including the Death Works series. He has twice won Aurealis Awards for his short stories. His latest novel is Day Boy.
