Great Workshop Session – Writing for Writers – Stacey McCoy – Avoca Arts Gallery 127

Fantastic session at Avoca Arts Gallery 127, run by regional self-published writer, Stacey McCoy, Writing for Writers.  There was no “down time” for participants, who were enthused by Stacey’s prompts, words of wisdom, and insights from her experience, keeping audience attention throughout.  Everyone learned a lot.  As a result, writing networks were identified as needing to grow to support the aspirations of many writers in the region.  Writers were able to discuss their works with each other, receiving support and feedback, vital for many who tend toward solo stints in front of the computer or page.  President of Avoca Arts Gallery 127 Committee, Hugh Forster, is keen to “grow” the writing side of the arts, so keep watching this site for updates.  Already a group of writers have set up a network on Facebook, Pyrenees Writers Platform at Avoca.  Feel free to apply to join this new group, run by the attendees from the workshop, as big things are planned for the future.  Thank you to Hugh, Stacey and all attendees who created such a lovely atmosphere for a creative and productive day.

Writing for Writers Workshop – Avoca Arts Gallery 127, 13 – 15 York Avenue, Avoca Victoria.
If you have ever wanted to write a book, or are writing and interested in self-publishing, or perhaps would like to learn a trick or two about story development, then this workshop is for you.

With something for everyone, some of the topics we’ll be discussing are:

Where do ideas for stories come from?
What makes a good story?
Character profiles.
Which words should we cut from our writing to make sentences stronger, and a basic guide to self-publishing.
Plus much, much more.

At $50 a ticket, we will start the day with an informal meet and greet over morning tea. Lunch and afternoon tea will also be included in the cost.

This day workshop will take place at Avoca Arts Gallery 127 (at the historic railway station) Thursday from 10am-4pm.

Limited places are available so please add your name to the Facebook event linked above, and contact me for payment details.

I look forward to seeing you there and discussing with you your work and how to make it the best it can be and get it published.
