Kate Forsyth wrote her first novel at the age of seven, and is now the internationally bestselling & award-winning author of almost forty books over a range of genres. Her most recent book for adults is a historical novel called ‘The Beast’s Garden’ which retells the Grimm brothers’ version of ‘Beauty & the Beast’, set in the German underground resistance to Hitler in World War II. She is best known for her historical novel Bitter Greens, which interweaves a retelling of the Rapunzel fairy tale with the true life story of the woman who first told the tale, the 17th century French writer Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force. In this workshop discover the secret of writing stories that enchant the reader, opening a magical gateway so that they can escape to other worlds and other times. Master the tools of the craft so that you can weave a spell that will hold the reader captive till the last page is turned. Learn how to add that elusive touch to your writing so that it shines like a beacon. Spend a day with Kate Forsyth and she promises you will be stimulated, motivated and inspired with new ideas, techniques, and solutions to help you write that novel you’ve always dreamed of.
