Each month, the Writers of the Far South Coast delivers new and exciting seminars for the community.
In March, Millingandi author Stephen Kambouridis will be sharing his belief that writing is the main key to understanding and expressing human creativity, ie: “Emotive writing”.
Having completed a Diploma of Arts in Professional Writing and Editing Stephen then went on to teach the course at the University of Ballarat. After having travelled extensively he fell in love with the Sapphire Coast.
When he’s not surfing the local waves, Stephen is adding the finishing touches to his soon-to-be-published novel.
At afternoon’s end, you’ll have created content that is both atmospheric and emotive by converting a stimulus into an engaging narrative using lyrical and poetic devices.
Stephen will also describe the links between casual discussion and literature while surrounded by thousands of literary works at the Tura Marrang Library.
The workshop that runs from 1pm-3.30pm on Saturday, March 18, is already gathering interest.
“The reason I keep coming back is for the camaraderie of like-minded people,” says WFSC member Geof Maher.
The Writers of the Far South Coast also run manuscript clinics in the morning to provide peer feedback on your work and special events, such as the club’s annual Winter Writers Retreat, to be held in July, which has an infectious atmosphere.
If your novel is nearing completion there is a manuscript assessment day later in the year and as a special treat a weekend playwriting intensive with Short+Sweet International Literary Manager, Pete Malicki at the end of April.
