DRAFTBUSTERS is a monthly workshop for published or unpublished memoir writers, novelists, script writers, non fiction writers, scribblers and doodlers in all genres, who want to seriously progress with their long term writing project.
Whether you are at the beginning or end of a first, second or umpteenth draft of an idea, a story, a book or a script, DRAFTBUSTERS will keep you and your writing, motivated and on track. It will provide valuable feedback and support for your work and your writing process, while instructing you in the essential elements of writing craft.
Each month we address different areas of writing craft with exercises designed to progress the writing of your book. Each author also has a designated feedback session where they can read, discuss, or present any part of their writing for constructive criticism.
Cost: $150 waged, $100 unwaged (other discount offers available, contact Jan for more info).
Venue: Glenrock House, Petersham, Sydney.
