The Start of the Story

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
15 May 2022
Author / Presenters: 
Andrew Pippos, Jane Rawson, host Jenny Mitchell

Do you ever rip through a good novel from start to finish, then sit back and think, how did they do that? Where did the idea for that story come from? For Andrew Pippos and Jane Rawson, it was family history, and it must have seemed like a gift from the past when they started writing. Jenny Mitchell asks about origins and what is remembered. Is the place important? Can photos help? And what happens to the details of the original story once the writer’s imagination takes over?

Tickets $20 full / $16 concession or multi-buy.
