Burlesque your writing – how less is more.

Fortunately, during this workshop, Gareth will be removing nothing more than his top hat. He will, however, be talking about what he learned about his writing from having it lovingly salvaged and pruned by the experts at Walker Books Australia. He will explain why he thinks much of Steampunk is overwritten and give examples you can apply to your own writing. Bring along some of your own work, a red pen and a devil-may-care attitude.

Gareth Ward won the Storylines 2016 Tessa Duder award for his Steampunk novel ‘The Traitor and The Thief,’ which is published by Walker Books Australia in August 2017.
