This series of workshops facilitated by Airini Beutrais is aimed at generating new work and is suitable for writers of all levels of experience. We will look at examples of the craft of writing indifferent genres, and develop our own work using exercises that focus on the creative process. We will explore how to temporarily switch off the inner critic while writing, but also how to edit our work for clarity once the time is right. Writing in all genres can be accommodated and we can also incorporate different end goals ranging from writing for personal self-reflection through to writing for publication.
Vivienne Plumb is an experienced writer and tutor and is the 2023 Dan Davin Literary Foundation Writer in Residence.
The courses will be composed of some actual writing, and also some discussion surrounding the important components needed to produce strong fiction and powerful poetry.
This is also a chance for participants to gain other information related to creative writing such as where to send your work, publication, how to invent your own project, funding information, and any other relevant questions you may have.
