Author talk and Writing Workshop

Author Melanie Joosten

Author Melanie Joosten talks about her latest project

The stars and planets are at the heart of a novel that writer Melanie Joosten will work on during a month-long residency in Orange. Melanie has arrived in Orange and will be guest speaker at Orange City Library on Wednesday 5th December at 5.30pm. Come along to hear about her latest writing project.

Melanie will also present a Writing Good Fiction Workshop on Saturday 8th December from 10.30am – 12.30pm. This workshop will cover the basics of creative writing by asking participants to interrogate the elements of good fiction. How do you create memorable characters? How do you find your writing voice? How do you create narrative tension? How can setting convey emotion? What do you do with a piece of writing that’s just not working? What use is an unreliable narrator? How do you find something to write about? How can reading help you write?

Please call the Library on 6393 8132 to book your place at these events. Writing Australia, a consortium of the state and territory writers’ centres, has developed this new regional residency scheme, titled ‘Places’, to support the writing of new Australian works.
