with Darren Groth
in conjunction with Adelaide Writers' Week
Have you ever pondered: how do I write to the best of my ability? How do I work with agents and editors? How do I connect with a readership? How do I “wow” an audience when performing my work? Every rising author has questions and now here’s a chance to have them expertly addressed.
Darren Groth, author of Kindling and the acclaimed Are You Seeing Me? and former registered mentor with the Australian Society of Authors, has travelled a unique literary odyssey, accumulating answers to these questions along the way. From the nuance of narrative craft to the machinations of literary persona, Darren will provide entertaining, interactive and practical insights into the burning queries every author possesses.
Participants will gain understanding in:
- fashioning a great story
- balancing feedback consideration with author expertise
- managing relationships with key industry contacts
- building connections with readers
- enhancing live performance opportunities
