MEMBER SPEAKER - Gwen Wilson - The search for belonging: From Memoir to Historical Fiction

Gwen Wilson Gwen’s debut memoir, I Belong to No One  is a gritty tale of being raised the illegitimate, fatherless, daughter of a “mad” mother. A rebellious teenager in the 70s, Gwen became a mother in the Forced Adoption era. Was this life predestined by great-grandmother Louisa, born in Bradford in 1854? Her 1892 divorce created mayhem for the following generations. It’s a dramatic story – but how to turn Louisa’s Legacy into a page-turner? I Belong to No One is available from bookstores and online from Booktopia, Angus & Robertson, Amazon, Kobo and Book Depository, in paperback, eBook and audio (narrated by the author).

WORKSHOP PRESENTER - Jacqui Winn - Character: The Heart Of The Story

Jacqui Quinn Readers hook into character more readily than any other aspect of story. An effective main character needs to be created from the inside out, rather than the other way around. An interesting internal life is the best starting point for setting up a main character that will breathe life into the plot and keep the reader’s interest for the entire story. This workshop will take participants through a process to set up the main character and secondary characters with depth and authenticity. Jacqui has two collections of short stories published by Ginninderrra Press and available for purchase on her website at jacquelinewinn.com
