Bron Blake: Creative Writing Workshops

Bron is travelling with Royal Flying Doctors Service, to deliver sixteen writing workshops, or one-to-one conversations, with people living in drought affected areas wanting to write their story.

The workshops, 'What is Your Story?' are being held in conjunction with the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Rural Development, Drought Community Outreach days, in sixteen towns across drought affected Central, South and South-west Qld.

In each town, the workshop will start at 10.30am, at the venue for the Drought Community Outreach day. The workshops will run for an hour. Bron will be available at each venue from 10am to 1pm for further discussion.

The guided sessions provide structure and direction for your writing, but all are fun and very supportive of the writer, whether the person has written before or is a hesitant beginner.

Participants may be interested in starting a family memoir, writing a short story or article, contributing to an anthology, or expanding ideas around their own work. Some participants may choose to write specifically about their drought experience, but this is entirely up to the writer.
