Event details

In this free and online creative writing workshop, you will work with authors Nora Nadjarian and Eve Makis to explore fresh perspectives on love. How can we make love intimate or silly, surprising or sexy, romantic or sarcastic in our writing? We will be looking at examples of contemporary poetry and flash fiction that will dispel any clichés and energise rehashed ideas you may have on the subject.

Inspired by group discussions, you will be given prompts to write your unique pieces.

This workshop is open to all skill levels.
