WRITER IN RESIDENCE
From mid-October 2016 through to the beginning of December I will be
Writer-in-Residence at the Adelaide City Library. I will
lead four workshops, "Time, Place, and Memory: adventures in life writing" on
alternateTuesday mornings, beginning on 18th October. These
are free, but must be booked.
In addition, there will be three Friday morning seminars based around my
recently released non-fiction book
Quiet City: walking in West Terrace Cemetry.
In these informal community sessions I will talk about the writing of the
book, and some of the extraordinary stories that feature in it. There will also
be time to share personal stories with a West Terrace Cemetery connection.
Perhaps you are descended from one of those pioneer families whose challenging
lives have not yet been written. If so, the Quiet City - Untold Stories
sessions could be the first step towards fitting your fragments of family
history into the wider history of the city, or towards finding ways to record
their stories. I look forward to seeing some of you there!
