Masterclasses - The Narrative Landscape (Cancelled)

Saturday July 25, 2020
13:00 - 17:00

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this class has been cancelled and will be rescheduled to another date. Please subscribe to our newsletter if you wish to be informed when the Masterclasses will return.


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 Portland Jones in a masterclass on The Narrative Landscape

Tim Winton once said that ‘Australia has more landscape than culture,’ and while this may or may not be true it is certainly true that many Australian authors have a particular affinity with the landscape. Join me and we will explore ways of writing landscape – we’ll read, write and respond to visual images and gain useful insights into how landscape lends perspective to your writing. Suitable for writers of all levels of expertise who wish to explore and add depth to their fiction and creative non-fiction, essays and memoir.
