FREE | Open Book: Graeme Simsion and Lee Kofman on the art of writing

June 28, 2022 @ 4:30 am - 6:30 am EDT


Writers Graeme Simsion and Lee Kofman give a masterclass on the art and craft of writing.

About this event

Best-selling authors Graeme Simsion and Lee Kofman share their wisdom, insights and skills on the art and craft of writing.

Graeme Simsion’s The Novel Project is a masterclass from an author who started his writing career at fifty and whose novels have sold millions of copies around the world. It could have been called What They Don’t Teach You in Writing School because, rather than focusing on prose, it covers the entire writing process, from premise to proofreading, as a step-by-step project.

Lee Kofman’s The Writer Laid Bare: Mastering emotional honesty in a writer’s art, craft and life is a book for everyone who loves the craft of good writing. Writing coach Lee Kofman has distilled all her wisdom, insight and passion into this guide to writing and emotional honesty in literature.

Tune in to hear from two of Australia’s most admired writers, Lee Kofman and Graeme Simsion, in conversation with writer and interviewer Claire Halliday.

This event will be presented online via Zoom. To join you will need an internet-enabled computer, tablet or smartphone. The Zoom meeting ID will be sent to the email address you registered with one hour before the start of the session.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
