Nick Earls: Online Session: Narrative Toolkit

Session Info:

Advice about writing is common, but this session adds tools to a student’s writing toolkit. Nick Earls has taken what he has learned about writing and turned it into tools that writers can use, consciously and deliberately, again and again, to take control of their writing and create compelling stories. From discovering and developing story and character ideas, to structuring a narrative, to writing and editing, this talk – in a way that is both memorable and entertaining – provides tools to empower writers to take command of each step in the writing process, and gives them something to reach for any time they’re feeling stuck.

The session is delivered as a one-hour recorded video talk incorporating PowerPoint. It can be accompanied by a customised introduction for each school, and video answers to student questions following the talk can be provided to the school.

This session can work independently or be followed by the Using the Narrative Toolkit video workshop.
