In 2017, our regular Member Meet Ups have gone genre!
We’ve heard the calls for us to provide an opportunity for members to meet others who share their writing passions. So from memoir to speculative fiction, poetry or history, you can now come to our Member Meet Ups and meet your fellow fans, or simply come along to test out a new genre.
These events are focused on building stronger community and connections between our members, and are an open, warm and inclusive way to start networking.
The SA Writers Centre, in partnership with the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority, have announced an exciting new series of free workshops and events as part of the ongoing Cultural Centre for the Dead project.
Run in the surrounds of Enfield Memorial, the Cultural Centre for the Dead is a community based project which – through creative writing and performance – seeks to open a dialogue with writers from diverse cultural backgrounds on their experience of a universal yet shared topic: death. Specifically the project seeks to uncover the ways in which traditional death practices can impact and influence the way we live our lives.
Creative works developed as part of the workshop series will be performed at an evening event held at Enfield Memorial Park, 6pm Saturday 8 July. This free community function will include readings, performance, music and dance, plus food and refreshments, and will emphasise the community’s cultural diversity. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
