Here's a message from Marianne:
Hiya! I’m conducting a two day workshop in Kilcoy at the GONDOR WRITERS CENTRE on May 30th and 31st. Contact Elaine Ouston to book your attendance. It is very reasonably priced, so don’t miss out.
I’ve been presenting worldbuilding and research workshops for a few years and I’ve learned some great tips to help you make your novels and stories more authentic. I can’t wait to share them with you. Bring a friend and have a fun weekend away!
Marianne's Workshops: Research and World-building:
Research - how to start, where to look and when to stop!
World-building - creating authentic worlds without turning your novel into an indigestible travel diary.
How much do you need to know? Learn what to put in and what to leave out.
Booking are flowing in for this workshop. Be one of the lucky ones and learn from the best.
Cost: 2 days $160. 10am to 4pm. 1 day $80. Accommodation can be arranged if required. See below for details.
ATTEND VIA SKYPE:
Can't make it on the day... no problem just Skype in. Please indicate when you book that you want to be linked by Skype and send us your Skype profile. Limited numbers, so book early. You will be sent the worksheets and notes so you can participate along with the attending students.
Get your writing friends together and save money. Group discounts apply to groups of 3 or more for all of Gondor’s workshops.
Accommodation: As our accommodation is not yet ready, we have arranged accommodation at the nearby Kilcoy Motel for those who wish to stay over.
They have 2 and 3 bedroom cabins as well as motel rooms. You can have a look at their rooms on their website http://kilcoymotel.com.au. If you book through us, we can get you a slightly cheaper rate if we have a group booking.
Share accommodation in the 3 bedroom cabins or family motel rooms would start around $70 per person per night and the single room $90.
Optional extras: For two day workshops, we would love our attendees to stay around for a social gathering after the workshop, so we have decided to offer a Barbeque dinner on the Saturday night for $30 per head. Lunch will also be available both days for $20 per head per day.
