In by Shelley Pisani

Event Phone: (07) 4153 1218

with Rachel Bailey

This interactive masterclass with Rachel Bailey focuses on the creation of complex and original characters by looking at three areas:

  1. their past, and how that backstory is brought forward into the story;
  2. their future, both their projected future such as their goals and dreams, as well as the actual future of how their story will end, and
  3. their present – what happens during the story, and then the issues involved in putting all three areas together.

Examples will be analysed from both books and movies across a range of genres, and broken down into elements that will be easy to apply in participants’ own work. Through writing exercises and worksheets, participants will have the opportunity to use the information in their own works-in-progress.

This is a full-day masterclass. The 9am-4:30pm timeframe includes breaks for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Morning and afternoon teas are included in the ticket price, and lunch will be available for pre-purchase.
