Writing ‘Home’

What is home? Do we travel towards it, or do we navigate the world from it? Is it a place, a character, an idea? If it’s the setting of your story or a recurring theme in your mind, these questions are relevant. In this workshop, you’ll explore ‘home’ through language, memory, perspective and place. There’ll be plenty of discussion, writing exercises and supportive critical feedback. Whether you’re deep into a work-in-progress, or just starting out, fiction or non-fiction, this day is for you.


  • When: Sunday 18 February, 10am–4pm
  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
  • With: Elise Valmorbida
