Fiji workshop - Truly, Madly, Deeply
During this course Margo will be encouraging you to write truly, madly and deeply.The workshop sessions will happen in the mornings. The afternoons will be free; then we'll meet again in the evenings before dinner to read from works in progress or from our workshop writing, and get feedback from the group.
Truth: getting authenticity and authority into your fictional settings and characters; finding ‘the telling detail’ in a scene or character; writing convincing dialogue; making action feel real
Madness: freeing yourself to take leaps in the dark; getting out of your own way; refreshing your writing; disciplining your inner editor; filling the well; experimenting with strangeness
Depth: writing the story that only you can write; confronting your fears; writing from your depths—but keeping yourself safe/sane
This will be an intense retreat—but in a good way. Come along and refresh your writing, try new techniques and reconnect with your own personal sources of story.
You can find more details and make a booking here.
If you know anyone who'd like to warm up in Fiji for a week (or cool down, if they're coming from the States) and combine it with some intensive writing and thinking-about-writing, please pass the link on.
