Prompt with Taya Reid

Friday October 28, 2022
16:30 - 19:00

Suitable for novice and seasoned writers alike, the Prompt workshop revolves around a deck of always stimulating, occasionally absurd, creative prompts to challenge and disrupt the storytelling mind.

Over 2.5 hours, writers will play with the deck through a series of exercises, micro and flash fiction, pushing the boundaries of their current work or seeking something fresh to develop. Cheese and wine included!

Using a quick-dive research technique to flesh out the prompts with layers of meaning and emotional impact, this intimate and fun workshop is designed to press the reset button on writing, storytelling, and perspective.


About Taya Reid

Taya Reid is a professional storyteller, writer and photographer on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. Since receiving her first writing accolade from Tim Winton at seventeen, Taya’s short fiction has gone on to long-list, short-list and win a variety of Australian and International writing contests and awards. Her work is published in anthologies including the recent Reset, for the Hawkeye Sydney Hammond Memorial prize. Taya is a regular contributor to Perth Happenings and margaretriver.com and her latest feature is in print in the Autumn/Winter Tales & Trails magazine. Taya is working on her first novel and can be found knee deep in the Indian Ocean most evenings, documenting Perth families at play.

“This quiet domestic study is beautifully nuanced – clear, smooth and illuminating… And almost imperceptibly, without suffering from schmaltz, this becomes a story of hope. A worthy winner that showed further restraint in leaving 50 words in the tank.” – Praise from the Australian Writers’ Centre
