Masterclasses - Editing

Saturday August 8, 2020
13:00 - 17:00
THIS IS A FREE EVENT

Masterclasses by established writers are coming to the Centre! Over a six-week period, beginning Saturday 4 July and finishing Saturday 8 August, six award winning writers will offer a series of six Masterclasses that delve deep into the heart of story and world-building, fiction and non-fiction, imagination and identity, research and writing, narrating and editing.

These Masterclasses are suitable for emerging and established writers who are committed to focussing on individual aspects of their writing and developing that writing further. Writers of colour and LGBTQIA+ identifying folk are especially encouraged to apply. The classes will run for 4 hours over 6 Saturdays in July and August and while you are encouraged to attend all 6, you may also choose to attend individual sessions as each class is run by a different writer, although the whole program has been developed holistically and consultatively.

Join Amanda Curtin in a masterclass on Editing (more details coming soon!)


Amanda Curtin is the author of two novels, Elemental (2013, 2016, Australia; 2016, UK) and The Sinkings (2008); a collection of short fiction, Inherited (2011); and a work of narrative non-fiction, Kathleen O’Conner of Paris (2018). Aside from writing, Amanda has been a freelance book editor for more than 30 years, and conducts workshops for writers and editors.

Amanda lives and works in an old house in an old suburb of Perth, Western Australia, with her husband (who prefers not to be photographed) and an extremely opinionated Siamese cat (who insists on it).


Please note, due to limited seating we do not offer ticket refunds.
