Arts and Entertainment Writing with Phil Brown
Sat. 6 May 2017, 10:30 am – 1:30 pm AEST
Arts and Entertainment Writing
When covering or reviewing a story, the arts and lifestyle writer functions as a conduit between the arts and the public. Through a combination of practical exercises and amusing real-world examples, Phil Brown will demonstrate how complex arts concepts can be distilled and made accessible to the public.
As well as practical exercises during the workshop, Phil will also be able to provide feedback on previous examples of arts writing which participants can bring to the workshop.
Finally, there will be the opportunity for all particpants to put their workshop learning into practice thanks to Queensland Theatre. All workshop particpants will be provided a Reviewer ticket to a media preview of the QT's upcoming production of Noises Off, on Saturday 3rd June at 7.30pm. Participants can then submit their reviews to QWC who will publish the best review, as decided by QWC, in the weekly e-newsletter. All particpants who take up the Reviewer ticket offer, must also agree to share their reviews on social media, and QWC can assist with this if required.
A workshop for intermediate and emerging writers.
