Description

Ways to Write the Body with Dr Quinn Eades Workshop

"Writing the body is inventing the body."

This workshop is a chance to meet and learn from award-winning poet, writer and researcher, Dr Quinn Eades. Eades writes at the nexus of trans, feminist and queer theories of the body, autobiography, and philosophy. He is published nationally and internationally, and is the author of all the beginnings: a queer autobiography of the body as well as the recently-released poetry collection, Rallying. Eades is a Lecturer at La Trobe University, and is also the founding editor of the journal Writing from Below. He is currently working on a fragmented autobiography of his body titled Transpositions.

"I am making the word flesh (this is not a metaphor)."

The workshop focus will be on writing from (rather than about) life experiences and the body, particularly around gender and sexuality. Quinn will discuss the politics of life writing, and the ways that writing stories from ‘other’ bodies can broaden minds and promote social change. Quinn will share information about his own writing practice, and then set a series of writing exercises, some of them to music. If you haven’t written for a long time, think your story is not important enough to write, or have dreamt of writing but never put fingers to keyboard or pen to paper, then this workshop is for you: you will leave with words.
