The Building Blocks of Story: a writing workshop with Jane Bissell | Whangaparaoa Library | Saturday, 19. October 2019

Have an idea for a story but don't know how to get started?  
What is all this talk about structure, plot, character, and theme?
Do we need to know all of this before we start writing?
How - and why - do we use these traditional elements as the foundations for great stories? 
In this workshop we'll look at the building blocks of plot, character, structure, setting, conflict and theme, and discuss why they are known as the 'foundations of storytelling'. 
Author and facilitator Jane Bissell will show you how to use these essential elements of storytelling to create compelling and engaging writing. By the end of the day you will:
- have an understanding of the elements that can make a good story great- have the tools at hand to really kick start your writing projects- have had a great time and lots of fun with other enthusiastic and creative writers. 
This workshop is suitable for writers from teens on up, and of any skill level. Tea and coffee provided. Bring your lunch or there are food outlets close to the venue. Free parking available in the adjacent parking garage.
This workshop is supported by Auckland Creative Communities.
