Omega Writers

Be part of an online writing masterclass with Write2Ignite!

Missing the learning opportunities now that the 2020 Omega Conference is postponed? Feeling a bit stuck in your writing? Here’s a fantastic opportunity for Aussie writers to be part of an international masterclass. (Lessons will be held over three evening sessions in late September/October 2020. More details below.)

Write2Ignite is a US organisation that supports and encourages Christian children’s and YA authors.

In their own words: “We provide Christian writers of children’s and young adult literature with:  Instruction, Inspiration, Encouragement, Challenges and Community.  Our focus is on those who write for youth. Our foundation is Christ and His Word.”

This year their annual conference will be a virtual masterclass held in the US on September 19, 2020. The teaching will be by multi-published author Joyce Moyer Hostetter who will help delegates master these essential elements in writing fiction:

  • Creating Memorable Characters — Tried and true strategies for creating characters.
  • On Writing Plot: What’s the Problem — Structure and the power of conflict in creating a great plot.
  • View Point and Dialogue— Dialogue that works overtime and strategies for creating an authentic narrator.

For Australasian writers, we’ll be holding the masterclass over three evening sessions in the weeks that follow the 19th September. The practical workshop times will be facilitated by Omega Writers member and Aussie children’s and YA author, Penny Reeve. PLUS you’ll get access to the recorded sessions for 2 months after the online Zoom event.

You’ll get:

  • 2 months of access to Joyce’s recorded sessions
  • Guided hands-on practice of new writing skills
  • Immediate feedback
  • Online classes that suit Australian/NZ time zones
