Bruce Russell is planning an exciting program to stimulate and support your writing.

The overall goal of Bruce’s classes this year will be to build confidence is creating works that fit the forms of the traditional short story (1,000 – 3000 words), the essay or literary non-fiction. Longer forms, such as the memoir, novella and the novel will also be considered.

The classes will begin with the study of extracts from published works written by masters of these forms. What makes these stories “work”? What draws us in, what makes us want to read to the end?

The classes will be held on the first Friday of each month, between 10.00 am to 12.00 pm, at Mattie Furphy House, Clare Copse, Swanbourne.

Class Dates: 2 February, 1 March, 5 April, 3 May, 7 June, 5 July, 2 August, 6 September, 4 October and 1 November.

Cost per session: $25 for OOTA members, $30 for non-members payable in cash at each session.
