From Inspiration To Publication – Practical Fiction Writing Advice and Motivation.

Delivered by writer Michael Botur.

9am-1pm with two short breaks.
Cost - $45, including writing feedback before and after the workshop.

On Saturday December 15 Northland indie author Michael Botur delivers a down-to-earth four hour workshop on fiction writing. Poets can attend too, although fiction will be the main focus of the day.

The workshop looks at how to get writing completed and self-published, in particular looking at the workflow required to get a story polished on the page so you can be confident publishing the work in a literary magazine or online.

The workshop covers voice, character, prose and editing. Botur says the bigger theme of the day is understanding that words on the page are just the start, and reaching an audience these days is about capturing inspiration, checking that the words are good enough to publish, then sharing it with the world online.

“I’ll be offering realistic advice about how to make the most of those hours in front of the computer screen.”

“We’ll also look at the workflow required to get a piece of writing to perfection, then get it read by an audience online.”

Whangarei-based Botur is author of several acclaimed short story collections, the new short story collection 'True?' and young adult novel 'Moneyland' which has gained a cult following on the world’s largest publishing platform for teenagers, Wattpad.

The workshop will include an introduction to online publishing platforms Medium.com, Smashwords, Createspace, Wattpad, Bookfunnel and Goodreads.

Registration is essential - please RSVP to Mike@michaelboturwriter.com.
Cost is $45+GST for the day - RSVP by email and Mike will invoice you.

Mike will contact you to ask for details about your level of writing experience, and give you some feedback on your writing before and after the workshop.

Please note although younger writers are welcome, the workshop is ideal for writers age 15 and over.
