Writing Long Form Journalism with Anna Krien (Alice Springs)
Sadly Anna is no longer able to travel to the NT. We’re investigating holding this workshop via webinar instead, and will be in touch with people who’ve signed up as soon as possible.
This is a rare opportunity to work with Anna Krien, one of Australia’s most respected non-fiction writers. From the fundamentals such as how to identify an original and compelling angle, development, research and interview techniques through to the craft of writing itself, you will emerge from this workshop with the necessary tools to tell your true story.
You’ll learn the essentials of feature and long-form journalism, and explore its many guises from reportage to profile writing and memoir. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their own writing through various non-fiction techniques and exercises. Aimed at early and emerging writers, this workshop gives a comprehensive introduction to the art of non-fiction writing.
Anna Krien is the author of the award-winning Night Games and Into the Woods, as well as two Quarterly Essays, Us and Them and The Long Goodbye. Anna’s writing has been published in The Monthly, The Age, Best Australian Essays, Best Australian Stories and The Big Issue. In 2014 she won the UK William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. Her debut novel Act of Grace was published in 2019.
