Writers Workshop

without comments

Went to a “Writers Workshop” on Wednesday evening at the Albany Dymocks on Wednesday afternoon, run by local author Elizabeth Newell, who recently won the BIC Australia Young Australian Writers Award for her short story Shaking off the Dust.

It was a fun, informative evening on characters and characterisation and general writing notes. Elizabeth showed us this photo and challenged us to write down who this character is, what he does, name and so on. I surprised myself by coming up with something promising. At the end, Elizabeth told us it was a picture of Joseph Stalin!
