Workshop 3: A Different Genre at the Fremantle Arts Centre, Friday, 9th March @ 1pm.  As part of the ongoing series - Working the Short Story - the following workshops are designed to help you aim for the biennial OOTA Spilt Ink Competition. This week's class looks at the portable prose of Helen Garner. "Memoirist, fiction writer, faction writer, creative non-fiction/non-fiction writer, journalist? Australian critics and booksellers have stopped trying to pigeonhole Helen Garner and now just give her prizes. This is the power of Garner’s writing. She drills into experience and comes up with such clean, precise distillations of life." Garner’s collections of fiction and nonfiction corroborate her reputation as "a great stylist and a great witness".

Writing Exercises and readings of Garner's prose. 

FOR OOTA WRITERS - Why not join out critiquing group? The more you critique your work, the more you learn!
 
Critiquing Group @ the Fremantle Arts Centre every Prose Friday morning 10.00am to midday.  This is held in the FAC Cafe (small room) and is subject to availability. Writers are asked to send up to 4 pages of their work (Times New Roman, 12, 1.5 spacing) prior to the Friday, so that you can read other writers’ work and comment beforehand.  This can be either a short story, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, part of your novel, your memoir, or part of a non-fiction work that you are having difficulty with. We will critique for two hours, have lunch before class at 1.00pm.  
Please note: The critique session is complimentary to the Friday afternoon Prose Class. Therefore the cost for both sessions is $25.00.  Beginners who do not have a project on the go, are very welcome to join us, to sit in, learn about the advantages of critiquing and perhaps have a coffee (This is free of charge - mornings only).  For more information contact Helen @ hagemann.helen@gmail.com
