Emotional honesty is a must-have for writers of both fiction and memoir, yet mastering such writing can be challenging, and uncomfortable too.

Emotional honesty matters from the very start – when we decide what story to tell. It is also crucial in fine-tuning our writer’s voice, in capturing, vividly, the complexity of human emotions and in articulating the central conflict in our stories. This workshop will guide you to hone all these foundational elements of storytelling.

This workshop is aimed at people aged 16 years and older. Bookings are required for every attendee.

Lee Kofman is the author of six books, including Imperfect (2019, Affirm Press), which was shortlisted for Nib Literary Award 2019, and The Dangerous Bride (2014, MUP); editor of Split (Ventura, 2019), which was longlisted for ABIA Awards 2020, and co-editor of Rebellious Daughters (Ventura, 2016). Her short works have been widely published and her blog was a finalist for Best Australian Blogs 2014. Her most recent book is The Writer Laid Bare (Ventura, 2022).
