The Telling Tree @ Bargoonga Nganjin
Melbourne Spoken Word
Yarra Libraries presents ‘The Telling Tree’, an installation based, interactive, community storytelling project. A weekly creative writing project for emerging, established and non-writers alike!
‘Emerging Writers Group’ (*16-25 years old)
Join a group of emerging writers as we explore and work with ‘fruit’ from The Telling Tree. There will be time for writing, drawing, collage-making, chatting and sharing. We will also set a new prompt for the tree each fortnight.
(dates – 7.02, 21.02, 07.03, 21.03, 04.04, 18.04)
‘Open writing sessions’ (*open to all ages)
The group will write quietly for 90 minutes, followed by 30 minutes to share and chat. You can respond to ‘fruit’ from The Telling Tree or work independently on your own project. There is no work-shopping, so it doesn’t matter what you are writing or which language you are writing in!
(dates – 14.02, 28.02, 14.03, 28.03, 11.04, 25.04)
Writing from these sessions can be submitted and considered for publication in an anthology/zine.
BYO laptops/writing materials. Wi-Fi and power available. Tea/Coffee/Biscuits served.
You do not need a ticket to attend this event.
