As part of our grant application process we needed letters of support. One of the people who provided a lovely letter for us was Kathy Stewart at Gold Coast Writers Workshops. GCWW is an initiative that began this year. They are offering writers’ workshops with people like Louise Cusack, a wonderful writing teacher. She was Prana Writers’ original mentor! If it seems like a small writing world, that’s because we’re developing a bigger and stronger writers’ network.
Supporting each other is a great way to amplify our efforts as a writing community. So it gives me great pleasure to share information about GCWW’s next hands-on masterclass with Tim Ferguson on 10th August, at Burleigh.
“It should be a fun day – in fact, I think it’s guaranteed to be a fun day!” Kathy said. She enjoyed listening to Tim at last year’s Gold Coast Writers Festival. “Tim Ferguson is Australia’s only comedy-writing teacher so we’re really privileged to have him here on the Gold Coast…I can’t wait to learn from him again.”
Tim will share his original techniques to create jokes, stories and comic characters in a course suitable for beginners and professionals.
