Mark L. Winston will share his insights and expertise at a nonfiction writing workshop hosted by the Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts.
Winston, winner of a Governor General’s Literary Award for his book Bee Time: Lessons From the Hive, is an internationally recognized researcher, teacher and writer.
His workshop explores how to engage audiences through story and personal anecdote linked to broad issues of public interest. Writers will have the opportunity to work on techniques to aid brevity, clarity and focus, and gain confidence using their unique voice and style, bringing key messages front and centre.
Participants should come prepared to write. The workshop will be interactive and participatory, using writing exercises, intensive group feedback, editing and revision.
