Mumbulla Grant Workshops

13th May - 23rd May

Writers of the Far South Coast (WFSC) are organising a series of writers’ workshops in the Bega Valley to take place in May 2020. At each venue, the workshops will run for five hours on the designated days in two consecutive weeks, with a morning tea and lunch break (bring your own lunch). Dr Rae Luckie is the presenter, and the workshops will include various techniques such as memory jogging, visualization, mapping, and writing from the senses to provide stories for the publication of a unique compilation book, themed around memoir-style stories written for primary-school-aged children. Many children and grandchildren ask the question: ‘Tell us about when you were young?’. This book hopes to capture that answer, preserve it, and entertain future generations.

The workshops are free of charge as the WFSC received a Mumbulla Foundation grant for this purpose. People will need to commit to both workshops at their venue. Workshop dates are:

Bega library, Wednesdays 13 and 20 May (10 am — 3 pm)

Eden Library, Thursdays 14 and 22 May (10 am — 3 pm)

Bermagui Community Centre, Fridays 15 and 22 May (10 am — 3pm)

Tura Marrang Library, Saturdays 16 and 23 May (10 am — 3 pm)

Places are limited to ten participants at each venue.
