The Art of Story Design

Date: 6 August, 10am–4pm

Theme. Plotlines. Characters. Point of view. Backstory. Voice. These elements, all crucial for writers to understand, are often considered separately. While this is extremely valuable, the artistry in developing work for publication lies in understanding how these elements interrelate, how they work together to create your story design.

The Art of Story Design

Date: 6 August, 10am–4pm

Theme. Plotlines. Characters. Point of view. Backstory. Voice. These elements, all crucial for writers to understand, are often considered separately. While this is extremely valuable, the artistry in developing work for publication lies in understanding how these elements interrelate, how they work together to create your story design.

Your design determines not only the way the story on the page unfolds, but also the relationship between the writer and reader and between the reader and the characters and events on the page.

Through exercises and readings, this full-day workshop introduces strategies to help you understand the bigger picture of your works-in-progress, to consider the types of decisions that affect your story design, and to deepen your awareness of what you are wanting to say and how to say it.

For beginner to intermediate writers who have a work-in-progress.

This event is part of the Byron Bay Writers Festival 2024 Workshop Program
