Adult: $15.00

In this online writing workshop with Felicity Castagna, participants will consider the techniques used by writers to convey ‘a sense of place’, as well as looking at the role it plays in creative writing.

This course will provide creative strategies such as:

  • viewing place as a character

  • uncovering the meaning and personal identity of place

  • discovering the meaning of home

  • uncovering a place’s relationship to the natural world

Participants will learn how to write with ‘telling details’ as opposed to too much detail, how to offer an unexpected way into a place and some strategies for weaving a sense of place into the narrative.

Felicity is a Lecturer in Creative Writing and has run writing workshops for many schools and writing centres. She has written for stage, radio and multiple festivals and her essays frequently appear in many Australian newspapers and literary journals. She has been the recipient of The Prime Minister's Literary Award (YA) for her novel 'The Incredible Here and Now' and was a finalist in the Miles Franklin for her novel 'No more Boats'. Her latest book is 'Girls In Boys' Cars'.
