Speaking about Writing

Join Kelly Gardiner in this full day course on speaking about writing.

One thing they never tell you: writers are performers. Bookshop and library events, writers festivals, school visits, genre celebrations – they’re part of a writing life, and a great way to connect with readers and our writing community. But doing it well is a skill, like any other, that you can learn, no matter how shy or inarticulate or reluctant you may feel. This workshop is designed to give those skills and your confidence a boost.


  • When: Sunday 10 September 2023, 10am-4pm
  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
  • With: Kelly Gardiner
