HAVE FUN RESEARCHING YOUR NOVEL

Presenter: Carla Caruso

Carla Caruso will be sharing her own experiences as a newspaper and magazine journalist and now author in interviewing people and undertaking research, as well as discussing what other writers have done in the name of investigation. Show more...

Testimonials

Bootcamp, Critique Register, Roadshow... without these I would still be beavering away in isolation writing mistargeted, hybrid, wrong-length manuscripts on flimsy paperstock with irredeemable heroes and overly complicated plots. I cannot imagine a single thing on the 'must have' list that RWAus does not supply to anyone who needs it.
