    Event description

    Join award-winning and best-selling author Graeme Simsion for a three hour writing seminar at the State Library of Western Australia. 

    Graeme Simsion is a bestselling novelist, popular seminar leader and author of The Novel Project: A Step by Step Guide to your Novel, Memoir or Biography and The Rosie Project.

    In his seminar, Graeme will cover the end-to-end process of writing, from premise to proofreading, as described in The Novel Project.

    Participants will learn:

    • How to plan the writing process, so they start every day knowing what to do it and how to do it, with confidence that they’re making progress towards a completed manuscript
    • How to take control of their creativity
    • How to create credible, complex characters
    • How to structure their novel using proven storytelling principles
    • How to deal with crises and problems, including writer’s block
    • How to work with beta readers and editors

    Tea and biscuits will be provided, and there will be book sales and signings after the event.
