Ailsa Wild: Online session: The process: from inspiration to publication

Session Info:

I’ll welcome everyone into my studio and we’ll begin the session by reading a chapter from one of my books.

I’ll tell a story from my own life and talk about how it inspired part of the story (it might be the time I learned to balance another person standing on my head, or when I moved to Australia aged five and didn’t understand my teacher’s accent, or maybe even my first ever school detention…)

I’ll show the students my messy notebooks full of ideas and my drafts covered in edits as well as an email from my publisher.

We’ll have a question and answer session.

I’ll give the students a story-writing provocation to work on later.

Topics covered

* The writing process

* Editing and rewriting

* Making your fiction seem real, by paying attention to your own feelings.

Delivery platform
