Join award-winning author Isobelle Carmody for a workshop on The Journey in Creative Writing.

In this workshop we will explore all aspects of the journey in creative writing, from the creative matter we can take from the journeys we make in the real world, and the way stories can be mapped on those journeys, to the structural use we can make of the journey motif and finally we will look at the inner journey that a writer must makes into themselves. Isobelle will also talk about how she makes use of the journeys she has made - both those of the spirit and the heart and her actual journeys- in various stories and books she has written.

Isobelle Carmody is a well known Australian author who has written many novels and short stories for children and adults and has a host of award winning novels to her credit. She began the first of her highly acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles while she was still at high school and worked on it while completing a Bachelor of Arts and then a journalism cadetship.  Obernewtyn was accepted by the first publisher she sent it to and went on to be shortlisted in the "Older Readers" section of the CBC Book of the Year Award. The series and her short stories have established her at the forefront of fantasy writing in Australia.
