About the Event

Mandurah Libraries are celebrating Love to Read Local in June with a series of author events and workshops.

Love to Read Local, an initiative of Writing WA, is an annual state-wide campaign showcasing and celebrating Western Australia's many, many wonderful writers and illustrators, and the books they create.

Workshop Information:

Characters and what they say are essential to what makes stories worth reading and writing. Through discussion, examples and activities, this workshop will explore ways in which new, budding, and experienced prose writers can craft characters that will absorb readers, add complexity and drive their narratives forward.

Morning Tea provided.

Places are limited. Bookings required. Book Now!
