Creating Memorable Characters Workshop
Suitable for 13 – 18 year olds


In this workshop, teens will take a deep dive into what makes a character truly memorable. Over two hours, aspiring young authors will learn the fundamentals of characterisation, including how to create complex, well-rounded characters with endearing virtues and flaws, and clear motivations that will stay in the hearts and minds of their readers long after their story is told.

Exploring contemporary examples of well-loved heroes and villains, before turning their hand to creating their own memorable characters, participants in this hands-on workshop will leave inspired and informed, and motivated to write dramatic storylines starring characters people will relate to and care about, cheer for and fear for!

Date: Saturday, 22 May 2021
Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm
Location: Mount Martha House Community Centre
Cost: $35 per person (Maximum of ten participants)

Adult Workshop
Kickstart Your Writing Life


Have you been looking for inspiration, motivation, or new story ideas? Perhaps you’re suffering the dreaded ‘writer’s block’? Or perhaps you have good ideas but your self-confidence is getting in the way of your writing momentum? If so, this workshop is for you! Get ready to fire your imagination by tapping into the right hand side of your brain where the creativity lives…

This workshop is one of my favourites! It looks beyond your pen and your keyboard to strip away your ‘why’. Why do you feel compelled to write? What is it you hope to achieve with your writing? And how can you set yourself up for success?

Featuring creative writing prompts and exercises – great tools for allowing yourself the freedom to write uninhibited by expectations…you’ll be surprised where they take you!

This workshop is perfect for beginners, or those that feel they would like more direction and cohesion with their writing routine.
