Events

What's Going On?

From Book Chats to Workshops, Festivals to Writers' Groups , our events offerings keep the Society relevant for women writers.

When the pandemic prohibited our ability to gather, we pivoted (yes, that proverbial word) and took our events online. Our virtual events have become a welcome addition to our program that resulted in a boost in our membership.

Whether you’re a Zoom native or not, keep an eye out for the next writing update on this page. We’d love to see you at our next event – virtually or until the time we can meet again in person.

Time: 11:00 am
 - 12:30 pm
Price: $15.00

This month’s meeting will be held in person at Ross House 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne.

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.

Location: Ross House Association, 247/251 Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC, Australia
