Laurie Steed will conduct our Prose class on Friday,  12th June at 1.00pm @ the Fremantle Arts Centre. Cost: OOTA $20/ Non-OOTA $25. Room 3, Upstairs North Wing. No Booking required. Just come along!

His workshop: Uncharted Narratives: Exploring ‘The Third Option’ will inspire you to write using exercises and examples from great short story writers.
Workshop Outline: How does J.D. Salinger play with audience expectation in ‘Teddy’? What is the secret ingredient in Peter Goldsworthy's The List of All Answers? Which single decision in Patrick Cullen’s ‘Scar Tissue’ takes it from memorable to unforgettable?
Looking at short story masters such as Lorrie Moore, Miranda July, and Ryan O’Neill, workshop participants will explore ‘the third option’, a plot technique designed to open up otherwise predictable narratives. The best short story authors already use it often and well. For any writer, it’s a way towards writing memorable, original, and ultimately, more publishable fiction.
Laurie Steed is an author and Ph.D Candidate at the University of Western Australia. His work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and published in Best Australian Stories, The Age, the Review of Australian Fiction, Australian Book Review and elsewhere. He is a member of the Margaret River Press Editorial Board, the winner of the 2012 Patricia Hackett Prize, and a past recipient of fellowships from The University of Iowa, The Sozopol Fiction Seminars and Varuna The Writers House.
