Toolkits Live: Writing Family with Jessie Cole

Express Media

Event Date: 14 May 2019
Author / Presenters: Jessie Cole & Zoya Patel

In our fifth week of Toolkits: Memoir, novelist and writer Jessie Cole joins us to talk about the structure, style and craft of her critically acclaimed memoir Staying (2018). Jessie will talk to the specific techniques she employed when writing about the complexities of family, loss and trauma.

Ask Jessie your burning questions on social media with #EMToolkits, and watch in real time here. Toolkits: Live let's you develop your writing skillset and hone your craft—all you need is motivation and an internet connection.

Express Media acknowledges that this event is broadcast from the stolen lands of the Darug and Gundungurra peoples as well as the Ngunnawal people. We acknowledge the lands on which this broadcast reaches and acknowledge First Nations people as the traditional custodians of this country, whose cultures are among the oldest living cultures in human history. We pay respect to the Elders of these communities, past and present, and extend that to emerging community leaders. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that colonisation is an ongoing process.

It was, is, and always will be, Aboriginal land.

Toolkits: Live is presented by Express Media in partnership with Regional Arts Victoria as part of the Arts Connect Series funded by the Federal Government’s Regional Arts Fund.

This special event is part of Toolkits: Memoir, (facilitated by Zoya Patel), Express Media's online skills development program made possible with the support of the Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund.
