Event description
Become a better writer by becoming a better reader.

About this Event

Writers learn to write by writing and by reading. In this workshop Melinda Tognini and Rashida Murphy reflect on the books writers read or ought to read. In preparation, each participant is asked to write a 100-word reflection on one aspect of a book they love. During the workshop we will reflect and unpack the ways in which reading like a writer makes us better writers. Come prepared to defend, debate, read and write.
