I just finished teaching a week's course on Writing the Novel at Auckland University Continuing Education. It was an intense week grappling with many of the elements of fiction writing in the context of a full length work.
Jocelyn and I will be at Continuing Education running a one-day blogging workshop, August 27th. Have a look at the link and book a place.
In our courses this year, starting in Whangarei this weekend, we'll be looking at working with writers to put a 'rolling' life story together, under the umbrella of Legacy Writing. The electronic media advances in the last few years have opened up all sorts of opportunities both for hosting and storing writing and for 'thinking outside the square' as to how you actually put your work together and which form suits which context.
The blogging workshop is a great place to start to get familiar with this vibrant media form. It's one of the roads into the future, for writers.
