Fiction Masterclass: Braided Narratives with David Whish-Wilson

22 August @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


As a writer, how do you ensure you have captured the necessary perspectives to fully convey the depth of your narrative? How many points of view is too many and how do you know which points of view to include?

In this three-hour masterclass, David Whish-Wilson will demonstrate the methods and benefits of working with multiple points of view within a single narrative to improve characterisation and build suspense. Along the way, he will open up your understanding and knowledge of the writer’s craft, and take your multiple points of view from the perfunctory to the powerful.

Presenter Bio:
David Whish-Wilson is the author of ten novels and three creative non-fiction books. He was born in Newcastle, NSW but raised in Singapore, Victoria and Western Australia. At eighteen, he left Australia to live for a decade in Europe, Africa and Asia, where he worked as a barman, actor, streetseller, petty criminal, labourer, exterminator, factory worker, gardener, clerk, travel agent, teacher and drug trial guinea pig.

David is the author of four novels in the Frank Swann crime series and two in the Lee Southern series, two of which have been shortlisted for Ned Kelly Awards. David wrote the Perth book in the NewSouth Books city series, which was shortlisted for a WA Premiers Book Award.
