How to Write Your First Novel

Vesna Kurilić

A tale older than time – you’ve always wanted to write a novel, but don’t know where to start? You hear that that novel writing thingy is fun, but it seems like it might not be your thing? Do you believe novels (gasp!) only happen to people from major cities/countries/planets? The purpose of this blitz-workshop (only half an hour long) is for you to come home from Liburnicon singing, i. e. sketching the first step of your first novel. Yes, yours! The workshop is led by Vesna K. from Rijeka, who (among other things) writes about werewolves, fires, unusual family relationships and about why everyone should write what they want, not what they think they “should” write.

Fractal Universe

The Fractal Universe is an art workshop based on the Method of Fractal Drawing by Tanzilia Polujahtova. It is an art therapy method that combines painting, drawing, psychology and mathematics, and aims at triggering hidden potentials and developing creativity and tackling challenges in a new way. The method is applicable to all age groups, regardless of experience, as you draw with your eyes closed! 🙂

The Airsoft Association Kvarner was created to bring together and affiliate several airsoft clubs in and around Rijeka. Airsoft is a military simulation sport, similar to paintball, in which replacements of firearms that eject balls are used. The goal of the airsoft meeting is to have fun while mastering military techniques and communication. Learn about replicas of real weapons, the concept of airsoft and how to get started. And of course, with expert supervision, try something out of the arsenal yourself.

The three “Go-To” Structures of a Good Story

Srebrenka Peregrin

Whether we talk about jokes or fairy tales, or we’re writing a shorter story, or a novel, we always need a well-formed action. At the workshop we will go through (and since we will be practicing: yes, there will be writing!) three simple but effective structures that we can apply to various narrative needs. Writing and storytelling tools are noticed and copied in a single example from fantasy, fairy tales and RPGs (yes, there will also be narrating!).
