Toolkits Live: World-building, setting and atmosphere with Jamie Marina Lau

Express Media

Event Date: 
16 May 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Jamie Marina Lau & Jennifer Down

In our third week of Toolkits Fiction, author Jamie Marina Lau joins us to talk about world-building, environment and relationship to place in fiction. How does setting inform a narrative—and its characters? How can we bring a place to life, even if it’s imaginary?

Ask Jamie your burning questions on social media with #EMToolkits, and watch in real time here. Toolkits: Live let's you develop your writing skillset and hone your craft—all you need is motivation and an internet connection.

Express Media acknowledges that this event is broadcast from the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge the lands on which this broadcast reaches and acknowledge First Nations people as the traditional custodians of this country, whose cultures are among the oldest living cultures in human history. We pay respect to the Elders of these communities, past and present, and extend that to emerging community leaders. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that colonisation is an ongoing process.

It was, is, and always will be, Aboriginal land.

Toolkits: Live is presented by Express Media in partnership with Regional Arts Victoria as part of the Arts Connect Series funded by the Federal Government’s Regional Arts Fund.

This special event is part of Toolkits: Memoir, (facilitated by Jennifer Down ), Express Media's online skills development program made possible with the support of the Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund.
