Tracks Brisbane with Express Media

Monday, September 25, 2017

I'm super excited to be presenting a workshop as part of Tracks: Brisbane on Saturday, October 21. It's an awesome all-day program of workshops and masterclasses for writers aged 14 to 25, and it promises to be amazing.

Here are some more details, from the Express Media website:
Express Media is delighted to present Tracks, a travelling pop-up program for young writers that brings the best of Express Media’s workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities and special events to communities across Australia. 
In 2017 we’re bringing the Tracks program to Brisbane, partnering with Queensland Writers Centre and Backbone Youth Arts to take the best of Express Media right to your backyard. 
If you’re aged 14 to 25 and have a love of writing and storytelling, Tracks: Brisbane is an exciting weekend event just for you. Across the day, you’ll learn from some of the best writers in Queensland, and expand your skills to develop and crafting captivating stories, find out what opportunities there are for you in Brisbane and beyond, and discover what happens when you’ve been selected for publication.
Tracks is free for Express Media members to participate in and attend. If you’re not a member already, Tracks: Brisbane costs $25 and includes joint membership to Express Media and Queensland Writers Centre (normally $55).
Here's what my workshop is all about:
Crafting Character & Representing Real Life with Steph Bowe 
9:30am – 11:00am 
Character is a key element of successful writing. What makes a memorable character in fiction and do you represent real-life people ethically? Do we have to be able to relate to all characters as a reader? How can you get inside your characters’ heads – when they came from yours? Explore strategies for creating believable, fleshed-out figures in your own work.
Tracks is on at the East Brisbane Bowls Club on Saturday October 21, and runs from 9am to 5pm. It's an awesome opportunity for young writers, especially considering it's free for Express Media members and only $25 for non-members. To find out more, and to book, head to the Express Media website.
