Writing classes for Adults with Geoff Bartlett

Writing a film script on Saturday 8th and 22nd August, 10am -12pm. This is a 2 week course so you need to book for both sessions.

All films begin with an idea. During this workshop, you’ll be guided in the process of getting your ideas onto the page, taking into account the technical elements of a film script. From there, you’ll learn how to turn your concept into a professionally formatted screenplay.  
Venue Level 2 Local Studies Room Ashfield Civic Centre.

Create an outline for your book on Friday 7th and Friday 21st August, 10 am -12pm. This is a 2 week course so you need to book for both sessions.

Writing a fiction or non-fiction book can be exciting and frustrating. But you can save yourself a lot of time by first outlining what it is you want to say. This workshop helps you make sure you’ve answered all the questions you need to before you start writing your book.
