A portrait of Quinn Eades

Quinn Eades
15 October 2017 - 10:00 to 4:00 PM
Quinn Eades
Focus on writing from (rather than about) life experiences and the body. Discuss the politics of life writing and the ways that writing stories from ‘other’ bodies can broaden minds and promote social change.

Through a series of writing exercises, some set to music, produce and workshop your own embodied text with your peers.

You will learn

  • critical and literary terminology in relation to bodies and writing
  • how to think differently about ways to write the body
  • productivity techniques for writing
  • how to have conversations ‘with’ rather than ‘about’ theory
  • new ways to articulate life stories.

Eades is a Lecturer in Interdisciplinary Studies at La Trobe University, and is currently working on a collection of fragments written from the transitioning body, titled Transpositions.
