Supporting Your … Thriller Stories

15 June @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$35 – $50

Thriller writers are particularly adept at keeping their fans reading well into the night. Yet the techniques thriller writers use to maximise suspense are not limited to the thrillers, and can be utilised by writers working in any genre to maximise their story’s impact and thrill.

In this three-hour workshop, participants will gain insight into the value of their story’s central question, their protagonist’s motivation and how to play with tension and pacing in order to create an unputdownable manuscript. Whether writing romance, literary fiction or sci-fi, the skills and exercises participants learn and practice in this workshop will assist them to write manuscripts and stories that maximise page-turning well into the night.

Participants are requested to bring any three pages from their manuscript/short story to class to work on.

About the Facilitator: Susi Fox is a crime and thriller writer and regional GP. Her first novel, a psychological thriller titled Mine, was published in 2018 by Penguin Australia and internationally. She is a KSP Emerging Writer-in-Residence in 2019 and is currently immersed in writing her second novel.
