Words, Words, Words – and Music [November 6]

On Thursday November 12th i’ll be running the final of five non fiction writing workshops for the Victorian Writers Centre (who have just moved into their new home at the Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas). If you missed out this year, or if you like the sound of the workshops, i’ll be running them again in the second half of 2010, so keep an eye on the VWC website for enrollment details.

On the evening of Tuesday November 17th I’ll be attending the 21st birthday celebrations of the RMIT Professional Writing and Editing course (in which i’ve been teaching part-time for the past four years) at the Trades Hall in Carlton. As part of the celebrations an anthology of writing by former students (originally published in Visible Ink magazine) will be launched and one of my short stories (Una Festa) has been chosen for inclusion.

And on the afternoon of Sunday December 13th i’ll be doing a reading at the St Kilda Library (Carlisle St) from my essay about the Balibo Five, ‘Remembering Balibo’, originally published in the 2009 Spring edition of Meanjin literary magazine. The event runs from 2 – 4 pm and is free.

Diary date: i’ll be performing a recital of French art songs and clarinet pieces at the Benalla Art Gallery on March 13th, 2010 – all welcome.
