Creative Writing is a craft like any other. In an entertaining and accessible talk, I cover the following, with reference to my own experience:

  • how to get started on a writing project, whether it's a novel, play, screenplay, short story, poem, article or review.
  • how to grab a reader's attention
  • how to plot your story
  • finding your own unique voice
  • creating realistic and memorable characters that readers will care about
  • writing entertaining and naturalistic dialogue
  • weaving in themes and motifs
  • creating space in a busy lifestyle for writing
  • finding an audience for your work
