Event Description

So you have a novel idea, perhaps it’s already on screen. Novel Writing with Eugen Bacon is a chance to understand the essentials of writing a good story that lures its readers. Hone your craft with a prolific multi-award-winning author who writes across forms and genre. This workshop will pay attention to turning your idea into a novel, structuring your novel, shaping fascinating characters, finding voice, viewpoint, polish, and all that. Includes active prompts and exercises.
Eugen Bacon is an African Australian author. She’s a British Fantasy Award winner, a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award finalist, a Foreword Indies Award winner, and a twice World Fantasy Award finalist. Eugen was announced in the honor list of the Otherwise Fellowships for ‘doing exciting work in gender and speculative fiction’.
