Just Write It AND Between the Sheets, two days of writing workshops with award winning Australian novelist Krissy Kneen.

Krissy Kneen is both prolific and award winning when it comes to writing and she is returning to Tasmania to offer two days of workshops on January 9 and 10 at the Moonah Arts Centre.

She is the award-winning author of Steeplechase, Triptych, an erotic adventure and the Thomas Shapcott Award-winning poetry collection Eating My Grandmother. Her most recent novel, The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine, was published to critical and popular acclaim earlier this year.

She is also considered the best contemporary writer of erotica in Australia and day two, Between The Sheets, of the workshops will be dedicated to writing sex, and finding a unique erotic voice.

Day one is Just Write It and it will focus on negotiating the discipline of writing and writing a first draft within a year. Krissy always has a book project on the go and is always asked how she manages to write books so quickly. In this workshop she will provide participants with advice on planning their books, and their writing practice and how to make sure the creative project is both started and finished within a year.

Tickets are available for $170 for each of the one-day workshops or $280 for the whole weekend with delicious food included.

The event is a wonderful opportunity for writers in Tasmania to hone their craft in these two popular areas of writing.

The workshops have limited places.
