This is a hands-on workshop so participants should come prepared to write their own short fiction.

This half-day workshop focussing on writing short fiction will cover topics such as story structure, the critical beginning of your story, building characters, the importance of setting and narrative drive and pacing.

Ideal for beginning to intermediate writers, please note this workshop will be hands-on and participants are requested to come prepared to write – preferably with a story you are already working on – or come prepared to begin a new one!

Workshop presenter Mark Smith lives on Victoria’s Surf Coast. His debut novel, The Road To Winter (Text, 2016) was shortlisted for the Australian Indie Book Awards, the Readings YA Prize, The Forward Indie Awards (US) and the Queensland Literary Awards.  The sequel, Wilder Country (Text 2017), won the 2018 Australian Indie Book Award for YA. The third book in the trilogy, Land Of Fences, was published by Text in 2019. Mark’s new novel, with the working title I’m With Hesse, will be published in September, 2021. Mark is also an award winning writer of short fiction, with credits including the 2015 Josephine Ulrick Literature Prize and the 2013 Alan Marshall Short Story Prize, and his work has appeared in Best Australian Stories, Review of Australian Fiction, Great Ocean QuarterlyThe Big Issue, The Victorian Writer and The Australian.
