The Queensland Writers Centre, together with Createplace, Storytelling and Arts for Health, is offering Scenic Rim residents free workshops in poetry, life writing, songwriting and transmedia storytelling.
Workshops in July will lead into a showcase of participants’ work at the Vonda Youngman Community Centre on Saturday 4th August.

Createplace Director Leanne Dodd says the Write On! Scenic Rim program will affirm and celebrate individuals and the community
‘This is a rare opportunity to share personal experiences through your choice of narrative form,’ Ms Dodd said.

‘Write On! will bring together people of different ages, from different backgrounds. When individuals share their unique stories, the community gets to reflect on its common ground as well as its diversity.’

Queensland Writers Centre CEO Lori-Jay Ellis agrees. ‘Creative story-telling can enhance individual well-being and community resilience. It’s also a lot of fun!’

Write On! Scenic Rim is funded under the Queensland Government’s We Are Queensland program, which supports local communities to share and celebrate their stories.

Featuring:

Leanne Dodd is an author, art therapist and life narrative coach who believes in the power of creative writing to change lives.

Andrea Baldwin is a registered Psychologist and singer-songwriter who helps people get more out of life by singing about it! 

Nicki Cassimatis is a poet, language teacher and mental health practitioner, who is passionate about poetry as a tool for self-care and authentic joy-filled living.
