Writing workshop with Louise Allan, KSP Scholarship Writer-in-Residence

This workshop will cover the many good reasons for writing about our memories and lives, and how to conquer the fears that prevent us from doing it. We’ll also cover how to write a vivid picture of our personal experiences so that the reader feels they are there.

During the workshop, we’ll write short exercises to a couple of prompts. We’ll also look at how to draw a unique meaning from these experiences, so the story will remain with the reader long after they’ve read it.

Sat, July 20, 2019 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

KSP Writers' Centre 11 Old York Road ; Greenmount A$38.01 – A$53.84

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
