There’s no such thing as writer’s block when you’re living, working and walking around in your subject matter. Writing Auckland is a challenging and exciting hands-on introductory creative prose writing course. Your city will be your material as you experiment with a variety of techniques.
During this course participants will critically analyze scenes from a variety of genres ( play, book, film script, autobiography etc.) , then move on to writing their own scenes that use the elements they have studied. After a short break for editing and revision, participants read work aloud and discussing its potential to be part of a longer narrative.
Everybody has the skills to write their life story. Life Writing with Deborah Shepard is designed for people who have never written before and participants who already enjoy writing in other genres and want to try memoir.
Under Deborah’s gentle guidance you will experience a summer writing school like no other, four blissful days where you can indulge your dream and write your heart out in a collaborative and supportive environment.
