with Rebekah Clarkson
as part of our Regional Writers Project
The best stories are often the ones that surprise us, the ones we never meant to write, or the ones that seem to come from nowhere.
Join acclaimed and award-winning contemporary short story writer Rebekah Clarkson as she guides you through a range of exercises to help trigger your own brilliant and unexpected short story and fiction writing ideas.
You will also learn techniques to bring your writing to life, such as authentic and effective dialogue, and the use of highly specific concrete and sensory detail.
Rebekah Clarkson’s short stories have been published widely, most recently in Best Australian Stories, Australian Book Review, and Something Special, Something Rare: Outstanding short stories by Australian women published by Black Inc. Her stories have also been recognized in major awards in Australia and overseas, including the ABR Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize, Fish Publishing Short Story Prize, Glimmer Train and the Carmel Bird Long Story Award. She is a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, where she also teaches. Most recently, she taught Fiction Writing at the University of Austin, Texas in summer 2015.
Workshop participants, SA Writers Centre members, and anyone interested in writing are also invited to attend a free SA Writers Networking Event on Saturday 2 December, 3.30-5pm. Get away from the desk, share some light refreshments with other writers (including Rebekah!), or come along with questions. Writers of any age and stage welcome. RSVP here.
Venue: Streaky Bay Visitors Centre, 21 Bay Rd, Streaky Bay (entrance via back door)
