The inaugural Conflux Writers Day will take place at University House, Australian National University, Canberra.
The theme is ‘The Writers Journey’, which will be covered by four sub-themes – Writing Skills, Writing Processes, Submission and Publication and Building a Career.
My first presentation, Presenting Your Blog Posts for Maximum Impact will focus on:
- text layout
- images and other features
- how to keep people on your site for longer
- accessibility issues and what to avoid.
My second presentation, The Elements of Novels, will feature information about:
- balancing the beginning, middle and end
- purpose of theme
- how to distil a novel into a single, sharp, meaningful sentence
- the three essential characters every novel needs (and how they work together).
In all, there will be a total of twenty sessions, plus an additional four plenary sessions by:
- Joanne Anderton
- Kaaron Warren
- Ian McHugh
- Keri Arthur
It will be well worth your time if you’re able to come.
