Event Details



Join us for a

Masterclass with Alan J. Wright!


The Writer as Collector

A Writer’s Notebook presents as an essential resource for teaching writing. It is a safe place for writers of all ages to harvest and experiment with ideas and launch more in depth writing projects. Teaching effectiveness in the writing classroom is greatly enhanced when teachers model and demonstrate how writers use a notebook to explore writing ideas.  Teaching students to be keen observers is not only critical to their writing development, but has implications for developing world knowledge and a greater connectedness to the words developing writers create. 


As an author and educator, Alan Wright has maintained writer’s notebooks for more than three decades. In this workshop Alan will take participants inside the writer’s world and share a range of strategies to stimulate writing through the use of notebooks. He will demonstrate how student and teacher voices emerge from writing in such places.


Alan is visiting Adelaide especially for this unique workshop day. This is a perfect extension for all who have participated in our Introduction to Writer's Notebook Mini Course.

Don't miss the chance to be inspired by Alan's writing and his teaching!
