This one-day masterclass is for writers who need assistance and encouragement to complete their manuscript.

The day will cover issues such as: what is getting in the way of finishing your book, keeping the book alive, finding patterns and resonances, reading like a reader and ways to approach the ending.

This workshop is ideal for those who have been working on a book for some time or feel they are ‘stuck’ and not progressing with their manuscript.

Students will have an opportunity to talk about their key writing concerns. Please come along with a few notes on your top one or two issues in preparation for the day. Note that students will also be sent some set readings to do beforehand.

The course includes:
• One full day’s intensive tuition from 10am - 4pm
• Lunch and refreshments
• A complimentary copy of a recent A&U publication
• On completion of the course, alumni discounts on future Faber Writing Academy courses and books from the Allen & Unwin website.

Class size is strictly limited. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
