Writing Workshops

I run an ongoing Creative Writing workshop at Kensington Neighbourhood House in Melbourne.

You can find out all the details on the Kensington Neighbourhood House website. 

The classes are not curriculum based.

You are welcome to bring in pieces of writing you are working on. You don't have to. You can be a complete novice, or an experienced writer looking for a bit of extra inspiration.

The sessions are all about generating writing, finding ways to find ideas, your voice, interrupting your usual writing patterns and above all, creating a positive and structured environment in which to write.


This class has meant so much to me.

Each week it has provided a safe (and challenging as you choose to make it) place to explore ideas and unlock feelings, and energy, with words.

The teaching has been creative, gentle, skilled, funny, always interesting.

I found this day fantastic, I really enjoyed the material and content.  I felt so alive again that I went home and wrote away happily for hours.
