The Novel: from Conception to Completion
James George, Guest tutor Thalia Henry
(Storytelling) ... is a game for two players... it kicks into life when a reader’s imagination collaborates with that of the writer. - Lindsay Clarke
Based on skills and technique this workshop is designed
to be practical, technical and inspirational. Exploring fundamental structures of narrative storytelling and how these can be expressed in creating fiction, writers will take away “a novel writer’s toolbox”, with experience in thinking about, discussing, and working through all the issues that may crop up in writing novels. Suitable for beginning writers and those progressing a novel draft.
James is an acclaimed novelist and short story writer of Ngapuhi, English and Irish descent. Author of Wooden Horses, Hummingbird, and Ocean Roads, he currently teaches and mentors on the Master of Creative Writing programme at AUT University in Auckland. James is Chair of Te Ha, the writers committee of Toi Maori Aotearoa, (2005-2018) and is currently working on his fourth novel, Sleepwalkers Songs, and fifth, Two Rivers.
