WRITING OUR INHERITANCE
Poetry and Creative Writing Workshop with Angela Costi

Angela Costi’s maternal grandmother, Yiayia Maroulla, left her Cypriot embroidery for Angela to unravel the threads of stories and memories. Angela wrote An Embroidery of Old Maps and New (Spinifex, 2021).

There are stories we’ve inherited. Often, they’re told throughout our growing years. Sometimes they’re prised open or found in the nooks and crannies of heritage and ancestry. Inspired by objects that have been passed down to us – connected to our personal history. A photo. A diary. A quilt. A painting. Fragile as porcelain or glass. Resilient as a ring or a brooch. Ephemeral as a candle or a bulb. What were you given? Or what was left? What do you know about it? What is its significance? Why is it important to you?

This is an immersive workshop (involving touch, smell, visual imagery) to encourage writing that comes from the personal yet has universal significance.
