    Event description

    As part of the 2024 South Coast Readers and Writers Festival, the SCWC presents an exclusive writing workshop on Friday 12 July.


    Historical fiction author Siobhan O’Brien offers a two-hour workshop on the art of novel writing that explores classic storytelling, novel structure and Greek archetypes. This workshop takes you through the counterintuitive art of breaking the novel into parts: turning points, character arcs, central dramatic questions, setting and micro versus macro viewpoint. It will also introduce you to the Greek archetypes and teach you how to use them as a guide in your novel!

    Siobhan O'Brien is an author, journalist and communications professional. She has written a number of books, including A Life by Design: The Art and Lives of Florence Broadhurst, and has worked for many media outlets notably the Sydney Morning Herald, Vogue, Indesign and Monument. When she is not writing, she is fronting her band, Minnie and The Moonrakers.
