Writing Effective Description and Detail

Workshop: Writing Effective Description and Detail

Facilitator: Brooke Dunnell

Date: Saturday August 20. 2022.

Time: 9.30 -12.30 pm

This workshop has ended.

Brooke Dunnell’s short fiction has been published in Best Australian Stories, New Australian Stories 2021, The Big Issue fiction edition, Westerly, Meanjin, and elsewhere. A collection of six short stories, Female(s and) Dogs, was a finalist for both the 2020 Carmel Bird Digital Literary Award and the 2021 Woollahra Digital Literary Award. Her unpublished manuscript ‘The Glass House’ won the 2021 Fogarty Literary Award and will be published in November 2022 through Fremantle Press.

One of the greatest joys of writing creatively is selecting the perfect sensory detail or figure of speech to spark images in a reader’s mind. Through a mix of theory, readings, and short practical exercises, participants in this workshop will learn a range of techniques to refine and enhance their descriptive writing skills.

Regardless of whether you’re a beginner or more experienced, a writer of fiction or non-fiction, or producing short or manuscript-length pieces, everyone who attends will get new insights into how to be more precise and effective when it comes to description and detail.
