Mapping Your Story
12-Month Master Class

Is your story, idea, novel, or script stuck in development limbo? Afraid you’ll never finish it? Rediscover your passion for your story as we explore its shape, uncover its intricacies, and redefine what makes it a unique story only you can tell. Over 12 sessions you will create believable conflict and characters, inject powerful symbols and themes, plot an organic narrative, and more, building your story a layer at a time with each workshop. By the end, you’ll rediscover the love that drove you to write your story in the first place and have developed a concrete outline and sample scenes that will get you to the last page. Are you ready to complete your story? Limited places, bookings essential.

Writing for Self-Discovery
3-hour Workshop

Some personal stories demand to be told but writing them is often difficult. Honouring these experiences to learn about oneself can be highly beneficial.
Award-winning author A. R. Levett draws upon research to demonstrate the benefits of writing for self-discovery, the uses of catharsis, disclosure,
symbolic repair, and bearing witness, and the possibilities of reauthoring experience through writing.


Please note, A. R. Levett is not a therapist and is not qualified to help you deal with traumatic experiences.

When: 28 July 2019 1pm - 4pm

Where: Mattie Furphy House, FAWWA, 88 Wood St Swanbourne
