About The Event
If you have lost your joy in writing, join Kate Forsyth for a three-hour long workshop designed to inspire and energise you once again. Learn how to write with mindfulness and flow, how to build up your writing stamina, and how to rediscover your sense of creative wonder and freedom.
“Ernest Hemingway is meant to have once remarked, jokingly, that there was nothing to writing. All you have to do is sit down at a typewriter, open a vein, and bleed. Although the Hemingway Society refutes this quote constantly, it appears all over the internet. Quotes like this have fostered a misconception that — if writing is to be of any value — it must be made slowly, laboriously, with great suffering and anguish. I prefer the Irish poet Seamus Heaney's view of it: ‘I've always associated the moment of writing with a moment of lift, of joy, of unexpected reward.' Writing a book is not easy. It can, however, be something that brings you an enormous sense of joy and creative fulfilment.”
Kate Forsyth wrote her first novel at the age of seven and has now sold more than a million copies internationally. Recently voted one of Australia’s Favourite 15 Novelists, Kate Forsyth has been called ‘one of the finest writers of this generation’. She has written more than forty books, for all age groups and across many genres, and published in almost 20 countries.
