Event Description

Do you think you have a book in you but have no idea where to start in writing it? A decade ago, Laura Waters felt the same way. Now she is the author of the award-winning travel memoir Bewildered, as well as a freelance travel writer for national publications such as Escape, Australian Traveller, Explore, Australian Geographic Adventure and many more. In this presentation, Laura shares what she's learned about writing an engaging travel memoir, including such aspects as the importance of story-telling, writing techniques (developing characters, building suspense and conflict, foreshadowing, setups, flashbacks), and the overall process from writing to editing and publishing.
