Fremantle Arts Centre: Helen’s start will be directly after lunch in Room 3, 1.00pm-3.00pm
Class to read an excerpt from Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. Writing Exercises and discussion will revolve around writers at writers' festivals. In particular we will look at Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and her sudden switch of POV mid-paragraph. Do we make or like that leap as readers and do we follow suit as writers?
OOTA $20.00: Non-OOTA $25

Dame Hilary Mary Mantel, DBE FRSL (born Thompson on 6 July 1952), is an English writer whose work ranges in subject from personal memoir and short story to historical fiction and essay. She has twice been awarded the Booker Prize. She won her first Booker Prize for the 2009 novel Wolf Hall, a fictional account of Thomas Cromwell's rise to power in the court of Henry VIII. She won her second Booker Prize for the 2012 novel Bring Up the Bodies, the second installment of the Thomas Cromwell trilogy. Mantel was the first woman to receive the award twice, following in the footsteps of J. M. Coetzee, Peter Carey and J. G. Farrell (who posthumously won the Lost Man Booker Prize). The third installment to the Thomas Cromwell trilogy, The Mirror and the Light, is set to be published in 2015.

Wolf Hall
Tudor England. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is charged with securing his divorce. Into this atmosphere of distrust comes Thomas Cromwell - a man as ruthlessly ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages.

Currently, Hilary Mantel is a guest author at this year's Perth Writers Festival.
