Inspirational poet and educator Deb Westbury hosts a writing workshop at Orange in July:
For beginner writers:
Writing from the Senses
The best writing is generous. To show readers what you saw, felt, touched, tasted and smelled is to enable them to enter into your original experience. To simply 'tell' them leaves your readers on the outside of your experience. It is not generous or interesting.
Saturday 5 July, 10am to 1pm in the West Room, Orange Regional Gallery, Byng Street, Orange.
The cost for the workshop is $35.
To book your place, please call the Central West Writers' Centre on 6393 8125.
Deb has been a familiar and respected voice in Australia poetry since her work was first published in 1975. Her poetry has since been widely anthologised, including the Oxford Anthology of Women's Verse. She teaches courses in creative writing at university and high schools and now resides in the Blue Mountains. Her latest work is The View From Here.
