Bringing our diverse local writing communities together to celebrate the creative talent of south-western Victoria

This workshop is intended for people who are interested in writing about rural places and how the notion of place contributes to an internal dialogue with the speaker in a poem. Participants will be asked to commune with their inner worlds in relation to the places we live, work and play, as basis for poetry.
