About this event

So You Want to Write in the Anthropocene

with KSP Emerging Writer-in-Residence Matthew Chrulew

Costs:  $35 members, $50 non-members. Online booking fees also apply. To avoid paying fees, please phone KSP directly to book and pay by debit/ credit card: 9294 1872.

This workshop is brought to you by the KSP Writers' Centre with support from the Shire of Mundaring. Tea and coffee provided.

From James Bradley’s Ghost Species to Laura Jean McKay’s The Animals in that Country, recent Australian fiction has grappled with the defining environmental issues of this century. Through readings from sci-fi fables to cli-fi dystopias, and exercises where we scribble our way into animal minds, this workshop will provide participants with new frameworks for writing in the Anthropocene.

Target audience for workshop: This workshop is for writers of any age and experience level who are interested in writing about animals and nature in the era of climate change and extinction.

About the Facilitator

Matthew Chrulew is a speculative fiction writer and a research fellow in Writing and Cultural Studies at Curtin University. His recent short stories have appeared in Westerly, Stories of Perth, Cosmos and Ecopunk! Speculative Tales of Radical Futures.

Organizer KSP Writers' Centre

Organizer of So You Want to ... Write in the Anthropocene

The Katharine Susannah Prichard (KSP) Writers’ Centre, affectionately known as KSP or Katharine's Place, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to encouraging authors and running writing development activities in the former home of celebrated Australian writer, Katharine Susannah Prichard (1883-1969), author of Coonardoo, Working Bullocks and The Goldfields Trilogy.

The KSP Writers’ Centre is located in the beautiful Perth Hills region. It is a community space which is open all year round for visitors to be inspired by a walk through the heritage-listed gardens.

The Centre boasts a premiere Writer-in-Residence program and unique Youth Program. In addition, annual activities include workshops, courses, writing groups, author talks, retreats, fellowships, manuscript assessments, mentoring, competitions, and an annual line-up of fun social events. The current literary program is brought to you with thanks to the substantial support of the Shire of Mundaring. 

‘The ambience of the place, and the encouraging attitude of all those concerned with it, can do nothing but further enhance and nurture a writer's career.’ Susan Laura Sullivan, poet, novelist and former KSP Writer-in-Residence
