How to Show Not Tell

writing workshop port macquarie

Come and join Port Writers on Saturday 22 May at 1 pm for a fantastic writing workshop on ‘show vs tell’ with local Mid Coast author, Jacqui Winn. Show vs Tell is one of the fundamentals that denotes quality writing. Everyone nods when it’s talked about but writers frequently fall into the trap of telling the reader rather than leading the reader to an understanding. It’s a technique that is much easier said than done. If you’ve ever felt those words tumble out effortlessly as you describe a scene – you need this workshop. Learn to invoke the readers’ imagination by crafting your words rather than tumbling them. A two-hour craft session including refreshments for just $15.00. At Rotary Hall, 198 Hastings River Drive, Port Mac. Please RSVP to [email protected] … needed for Covid19.

Jacqueline Winn’s short stories have won over 100 awards, including 35 first prizes, in international literary competitions. Her stories have been published in anthologies in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. She has also written novels, scripts for stage and short film, as well as a few poems which have also won awards.
