YA masterclass

As part of the Open Book Festival, local YA authors Cat Hellisen, Sarah Lotz and myself will be running a masterclass on young adult fiction.

We’ll be covering everything from characters, dialogue and use of language, to plot, pacing and setting. We’re going to be as comprehensive as possible, so if you’re interested in writing young adult fiction, then this class is for you.

The session will take place over two hours and is free of charge.

The details:
Date: 11 September 2013
Venue: Central Library – Seminar Room 1
Time: 15.00 – 17.00
Price: Free entry
