Divided narrative in Gone Girl
Workshop: Split Narratives in Fiction with Helen Hagemann @ the Fremantle Arts Centre, Friday, 11th November, 1pm-3pm.  This workshop will look at the choice writers can make by dividing their stories between two (or more) characters. The class is suitable for the novelist and also the short story writer. Writing exercises will revolve around telling one story, but from the different perspectives of two characters.

Venue: Fremantle Arts Centre, Upstairs Room 3.
Time: 1-3pm. What to bring:  Notepad, pen, laptop or iPad
Cost:  OOTA $20  - NON-OOTA $25 (ask for membership form to save).  
Please note: No credit card facility and new attendees who arrive without the class fee will be asked to pay on the day via direct debit transfer. For information on joining OOTA and what we do, please visit our website http://ootawriters.com 

A split narrative allows both sides of a story to be told: particularly handy if the author is seeking to explore issues like the lies we tell ourselves (and others), or the ways in which events are inevitably filtered through our experiences, our pasts, our moods. Gone Girl does this by splitting the narrative between Nick and Amy, two partners in a strained marriage.
