Toolkits: Fiction

Learn about story structure, character, setting and everything in between.

Express Media presents Toolkits: Fiction, a step-by-step online program combining theoretical approaches, practical exercises, and one-on-one mentorship to guide young writers through the development of new works of fiction.

Over a series of six online seminars, participants will explore storytelling and ethics, learn how to craft characters, plots and plans and how to polish work for publication. Toolkits is first and foremost a practical initiative and young writers will be encouraged to write, workshop and edit their writing throughout the course.

In 2016, Toolkits: Fiction will be facilitated by Jennifer Down. Jennifer will facilitate the online sessions and workshops, and will provide one-on-one mentorship and individualised feedback to each participant.

Young writers will also have the chance to learn from some of the best writers in the country, with guest artists presenting online sessions and advice to the next generation of Australian writers.

Toolkits: Fiction will take place from June 27 – September 19, 2017.

The full program will be announced and applications open on May 1, 2017.
