In 2015 the writing group to which I belong presented a session at the Newcastle Writers Festival: How to take your writing from hobby to publication.
The session was very well-attended and, by all accounts, well-received and we were thrilled. Since then, and after functioning without a name for several years, we have finally decided to call our group the Hunter Story Creators.
And the Hunter Story Creators (HSC) are presenting at the 2016 Writers Festival, although you won’t find our session under our name. The title of our session is Make Your Writing Pop. Hints, techniques, strategies, elements, devices, and other practical advice on how to ensure your writing stands out from the crowd will be shared between 3.00 and 4.00 pm on Sunday 3 April.
As this budding writer has discovered, the process of preparing for the session is a wonderful portal to learning for the presenters themselves. There’s nothing like researching a topic to expand your knowledge, deepen your understanding and provide new insights.
I think I can safely speak for all the HSCs when I say we are excited to once again be involved in such a prestigious Writers Festival and we look forward to meeting many fellow-writers over the weekend of 1 – 3 April 2016.
