About the Event

In this month's Writers' Room, Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa will be leading a workshop on Character Creation and Character Development in your screenplay. Drawing from a vast range of characters he has created for his films, participants will be invited to interrogate and evaluate these characters and create tools to assist in creating and refining them to their own work.

Our monthly Pacific Writers' Room is for any Pacific Islands Writers at any stage of their career (from emerging to experienced) and is availble both in-person and online. Just select if you are attending this event in person or online when confirming tickets. If you cannot make the event in person, please let us know!
