Masterclasses - Politics in Narrative

Saturday July 4, 2020
13:00 - 17:00
THIS IS A FREE EVENT

Masterclasses by established writers are coming to the Centre! Over a six-week period, beginning Saturday 4 July and finishing Saturday 8 August, six award winning writers will offer a series of six Masterclasses that delve deep into the heart of story and world-building, fiction and non-fiction, imagination and identity, research and writing, narrating and editing.

These Masterclasses are suitable for emerging and established writers who are committed to focussing on individual aspects of their writing and developing that writing further. Writers of colour and LGBTQIA+ identifying folk are especially encouraged to apply. The classes will run for 4 hours over 6 Saturdays in July and August and while you are encouraged to attend all 6, you may also choose to attend individual sessions as each class is run by a different writer, although the whole program has been developed holistically and consultatively.

Join Susan Midalia in a masterclass on Politics in Narrative (more details coming soon!)


Susan Midalia is the author of three collections of short stories, A History of the Beanbag, An Unknown Sky, and Feet to the Stars. Her collections have been shortlisted for the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards and twice for the Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards. She has a PhD in contemporary Australian women’s fiction and has published on the subject in Australian and international literary journals.

She retired from academia in 2007 to become a full-time writer, freelance editor and workshop facilitator. The Art of Persuasion is her first novel.

Susan has edited work by some brilliant writers, including Gail Jones, Marcella Polain, Amanda Curtin, Annabel Smith, Nicole Sinclair, Kathleen Fallon and Morgan Yasbincek. She remains grateful for the intelligent and rigorous editing of her own work by Linda Martin, Nicola Redhouse and Georgia Richter.


Please note, due to limited seating we do not offer ticket refunds.
