Put pen to paper at Wodonga Library

Writers with all levels of experience are encouraged to head along to the Wodonga Library on November 21 for the first writing workshop in a series designed for people with disability.

The workshops are also aimed at providing professional development for local councils, libraries, arts and disability organisations who write about disability as sessions explore how writing and storytelling can help develop new ways of thinking about the self, disability, and community.

Writers Victoria is hosting the eight-month facilitated program from November 2018 to July 2019 (excluding January).

Write-ability Project Co-ordinator Harriet Gaffney said sessions would include a facilitated writing group with a local mentor, a tutorial with a guest writer with disability, as well as webinars involving online courses and talks.

Participants need to be members of Writers Victoria to attend.

Why does Writers Victoria ask for people to become a member?

Writers Victoria is a membership-based organisation and one of the benefits of being a Writers Victoria member is getting access to member-only activities like this one.

The Write-ability writing groups are in high demand, so being a member will help make sure you don’t miss out.
