Event description

Description

Do you have a yearning to get your stories out of your head and onto the page but don’t know where to begin? Have you begun writing but found yourself stuck in a creative rut? Having the confidence to strike the page and set a course for your story-writing dreams are often the first and biggest hurdles to getting going, and the ones that can trip us up along the way.

In this fun and inspirational workshop, Kim will share all her best tips and tricks for kickstarting our words and keeping them flowing – and for keeping our pesky self-doubt at bay.

Who it will suit? No formal writing experience required. This workshop will suit both beginners and those looking for inspiration – whether you want to write your memoirs or the Great Australian Novel, or you’re just curious about storytelling.

What will we do? Some easy writing exercises to get your imagination going and keep it going, as well as a bit of daring each other through sharing our ideas and writing goals.

What will the peeps take home? How to get yourself in the writing zone quickly; how to slay the monster of self-doubt; and how to sketch out plans to keep yourself on track and inspired. Most of all, you’ll take home renewed enthusiasm for your stories and their importance.

Anything else? Kim’s writing workshops are inclusive spaces for people of all kinds to have a go, experiment, and be free to be themselves. A passionate advocate for Australian stories, she believes telling tales is essential to our wellbeing, to understanding ourselves and the world – and that Australian regional and rural storytellers are the best!

A bit about Kim...

"I’m a writer of Australian fiction, author of the novels Black Diamonds, This Red Earth, The Blue Mile, Paper Daisies, Wild Chicory and Jewel Seaall tales of passion, politics and history, of ordinary people living through extraordinary times in the land I call home. You can find out about all my books here and the nice things people have been saying about them here.

"When I’m not writing, I’m reading. In real life I’m a book editor and literary consultant, and I’ve been working in the Australian book publishing industry now for twenty years. Just can’t get me enough narrative action.

"Raised in Sydney in a house that was humble but for its library, I was always going to quite like things with words in them and do wordy type things myself. As I do here in this little bloggy space, whatever those things might be. Books, writing, wondering and wandering the rolling green and gold hills of the Central West where I live today on a small rural property with my muse de bloke, Deano, two cats and three chickens, and occasionally the kids when they come home to graze.

"Join me, and join in. Dream large and love larger,

Kim xx"
