New writers are encouraged to join writers’ groups and attend workshops. Often these include sharing work and giving and receiving feedback. Though most courses provide ‘how to’ guides on working with feedback, they can’t ensure no harm. Even well-meaning readers can bruise new work and a writer’s confidence. In this session, explore the desire for feedback and ways to listen while minimising the risk of being discouraged from writing and sharing your work.
- When: Friday 9 February, 12–1pm
- Where: Online
- With: Kylie Moppert
About the Tutor
After a marginally successful career in acting Kylie Moppert became an accountant. After two decades she needed a change and became an artisan baker. Although the creative and community life nourished her, the long hours proved unsociable and exhausting. Also, she wanted to pursue writing. In 2022 she sold her bakery to make writing her main pursuit. She regularly attends courses, participates in writing groups and has had works published in, to date, three anthologies. She is on the Writers Victoria Board.
