Prose Class with Christopher Konrad

Writing who you are
Do you suffer from Hypergraphia? The compulsion to write? Then this is the course for you! ‘Real’ writers cross culturally, across time and gender all assert that they simply do not have a choice but to write. We write not because we want to, but because we need to!
Writing is not a choice – it’s a compulsion!

A series of three sessions will help you explore the compelled writer within and hopefully, through that process, free up the work and allow it to flow more magically.This series commences on Friday 31st May, 14th June & 28th June at 1pm.  
Cost
1. OOTA members $35 per session or $100 for all three 
2. Non-OOTA   $45 per session or $120 for all three

Venue:
Fremantle Arts Centre, upstairs in the Print Room. Time: 1-3pm. What to bring: Notepad, pen, laptop or iPad. For information on booking for this series write to ootawriters@gmail.com
