To avoid writing Aboriginal characters in fiction is to continue to write First Nations people out of our narrative. But how do you do it right?

Join us for this unique two-day Indigenous Language Intensive to learn how to write well-rounded and non-stereotypical characters in your short story, novel, play or screenplay. Includes a day of Cultural Awareness Training with the Koorie Heritage Trust and a day-long workshop with award-winning Aboriginal playwright and YA novelist Jane Harrison. This event is made possible by the support of the Australia Council for the Arts.

Thursday 9 November, 9.15am-4pm at the Koorie Heritage Trust and Friday 10 November, 10am-4pm at Writers Victoria, 176 Little Lonsdale St Melbourne

Jane shared her thoughts with us in a Q&A. You can read it on this website.
