Writing, as much as any other art form, is a craft. It is developed over time, curated through relationships with other authors. Yet it also can be one of the most solitary pursuits of creativity – isolating in nature, given its traditionally solo trajectory. The act of writing often happens behind curtains, how can we create more spaces to share, discuss and collaborate?
This workshop invites writers to use the underpinnings of ‘confessing’ to confront broader issues of private and public experiences of writing, in the hope of gesturing towards a more collective mode of working and discussing. Led by writer Hatty Nestor, this workshop intends to unravel speculative questions and practical challenges facing early-career writers working across all types of writing practices today.
