Please join me for the following upcoming events. If you’d like me to give a talk/lead a workshop at your festival, bookshop, library, book club, writers’ group or whatever, online or in person please drop me an invitation via email.
I’m appearing at two sessions at the Williamstown Literary Festival on 16-17 June 2023. On Friday night I’ll be on stage with the merry Stereo Stories band, joining Andy Griffiths, Jock Serong, Angela Savage and more in a night of music and memoir. On Saturday 17th at 1.30pm I’m leading a walk around Williamstown to talk about place, memory and loss. Details at Willy Lit Fest.
A workshop for writers of all levels, ‘Psychogeography and the suburbs’, at Writers Victoria on Saturday 20 May 2023 from 10-4. Hone your eyes to old signage, details of architecture, traces of the past, and the poetry of the everyday. Inspired by the Situationists and the idea of psychogeography, we will investigate how ordinary places are rich source material. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction, poetry or memoir, insights from this workshop will stimulate ideas. Join me for a workshop and a walk.
