David Farland - award-winning, New York Times bestselling writer in two fields - Science Fiction and Fantasy

Fantasy and science fiction genre fans and those who want to write a story that captures the interest of a wide readership may have heard of David Farland.

He is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling writer in two fields - Science Fiction and Fantasy. He's also a brilliant creative writing teacher and author of The Runelords series.

I've done several of his online courses to increase my own writing skills and learned how to think about plotting a story that is well rounded that broadens and deepens as the characters face conflicts and resolve situations on their way to a climax.

And now, David Farland, is coming to Brisbane to teach a course for writers, titled: Million Dollar Outlines.

He has a book of the same name which is a great tool for any fiction writer in any genre, whether you are aspiring, writing your first novel or are someone who has been published for years.

David Farland has a way of explaining a story and the components that will challenge and excite you to do your best work. He encourages his students to stretch themselves and go beyond cliché and into original writing.

In this course, he'll be teaching students some of the following things:
Audience analysis - looking for ways to write your stories in a way that will appeal to a wider audience
What is a story and why people read them
Elements of story
Brainstorming settings
How to build characters and the roles they play
And heaps more

David Farland has taught some of the most popular writers on commercial fiction bookshelves, including:
Brandon Sanderson (The Wheel of Time)
Stephanie Meyer (Twilight)
James Dashner (The Maze Runner)
Dan Wells (I am Not a Serial Killer)
Brandon Mull (Fablehaven)
and so many more

His way of teaching helps writers take their story and think about the audience they want to capture, and then work their plots, building twists, reversals and using other devices to create a story that people love to read and don't want to put down.

So, if you have a book that you're writing and want to make it into something that will sell, you may want to check out David Farland's two Australian courses.

He will be teaching Million Dollar Outlines in Brisbane for four days in September and another course, Writing Enchanting Prose, in Sydney in October. Places are limited to a maximum of 16 attendees, so get in quick.

I can't recommend David Farland highly enough. This really is a great opportunity for you to learn from one of the best fantasy and science fiction writers in the industry. I've learned so much from him and I hope you do too!
