Masterclasses - The Research Imagination

Saturday August 1, 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 LGBTQI 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 Annamaria Weldon in a masterclass on ‘The Research Imagination’ (more details coming soon!)


Annamaria Weldon is a West Australian poet who also writes and publishes in other genres, and has done since her first feature article appeared in 1978. Working with words in different ways, she’s developed the writing practice which has sustained her for more than thirty years through changes of career, home life and location.

Western Australia has been her home since 1984. As a child she lived in Guatemala, London and North Africa and later returned to her birthplace, Malta. On the island she finished her schooling, started a family, worked as a journalist and first published her poetry.

In The Lake’s Apprentice (UWAP 2014) she tells the story of connecting once more to a beloved place, and how the wetlands of the south-west coast transformed her life.


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