Georgette Heyer is much loved by readers for her characterisation, her humour, and her rollicking good pace. What can writers learn from Heyer by analysing her creative choices? This workshop will cover structural issues such as plot, pacing, and subplot; and characterisation issues such as internalisation and supporting cast, to help participants develop their writing toolkits, no matter what genre they write in. Please read Venetia before attending, as it will serve as our guide book for examples.

Led by Dr Kim Wilkins, Associate Professor at the School of Communication and Arts, University of Queensland. Kim is also the author of 30 novels, published in 20 languages.

This writing workshop coincides with the conference 'The Nonesuch? Georgette Heyer and Her Historical Fiction Contemporaries
