Books can take years to write – plenty of time to lose yourself in the weeds. In this half-day workshop, meet other creatives at different stages of writing their manuscripts and troubleshoot solutions to common problems together. Led by ghostwriter, editor and author Ronnie Scott (The Adversary), this workshop will teach you traditional and non-traditional strategies for breaking writer’s block, restructuring projects, fixing routines and broadening your creative techniques.

Sydney Writers’ Festival is sponsoring one place per workshop for writers who may not otherwise be able to participate. Find more information and an online application form here.
