This is a walk and talk workshop, incorporating a walk around the Geelong City Centre to explore aspects of writing urban environments.
This presentation will introduce participants to the literary and artistic practice of psychogeography and encourage them to use these concepts in their own writing. Participants will hone their eyes to old signage, details of architecture, traces of the past, and the poetry of the everyday. Includes a workshop, writing time and a wander. Afterwards, participants will receive personalised feedback on one piece of writing from Nick.
