Workshop: Embracing Vulnerability in Your WritingSat 11 Sep, 2.30pm
This has changed from a face-to-face workshop to an online one. Detailed instructions for participants will be provided. Please note: This workshop is not included in the MWF Digital Pass.
Vulnerability beats at the heart of Rick Morton’s work. His bestselling memoir One Hundred Years of Dirt laid bare the legacy of family trauma, and its follow-up, My Year of Living Vulnerably, charts his healing from complex PTSD. In this special online workshop, Morton demonstrates how writers of all genres and themes can embrace vulnerability in their work, sharing insight into how to capture it on page, how to extend empathy to the people you write about, and how to dance the line between light and shade to make your storytelling sing.
In partnership with Writers Victoria
