Join this online course with author Eliza Henry-Jones to develop and enrich your research for writing skills. This course is packed with practical tips, examples, activities and resources that you’ll be able to utilise and adapt for countless future projects, both fiction and otherwise.

Feeling intimidated by the idea of researching your novel? Perhaps you’re delving into historical fiction for the first time, or you’re unsure of where to start finding out about your latest character’s unusual profession. This practical course will take the mystery out of research, guiding you step by step through the process – from finding inspiration, to identifying useful sources, and navigating the wild world of information including historical archives, libraries, reddit, social media, and academic journals. Finally, we’ll cover handy tips for managing the material you’ve unearthed, and ways to harness it to breathe life into your fiction.

Eliza Henry-Jones is an author and freelance writer. She has a PhD in creative writing, and has published five novels, which have been shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, QLD Literary Awards and Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction. She has qualifications in psychology as well as grief, loss and trauma counselling, and has worked as a therapist, researcher, reporter, and a creative writing tutor at universities. Her latest novel, Salt and Skin, was published in ANZ with Ultimo Press and across the UK and US with September Publishing. She lives on a little flower farm on Wurundjeri land with her husband and young son.
