Weekend Workshopping with Chloe Higgins

hero
As part of the South Coast Writers Centre's Online Writing Workshop Program, author Chloe Higgins will lead a six-week critique group for anyone who has some words down (a paragraph or a whole piece), and wants a group of like-minded people to workshop with to work out what is and isn't working.

Chloe is the Director of Wollongong Writers Festival, and her debut memoir The Girls was recently announced as the winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2019 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards.
Each week, participants will be invited to bring up to 500 words of their current work-in-progress. Each participant will read their work aloud to the group, who will then provide verbal and written feedback. This feedback will be delivered during the weekly sessions so that besides each participant's own writing practice, there will be no extra work required outside of the weekly meetings.

Location

This workshop will run entirely online over Zoom. Participants will receive an invitation link to join the sessions before the first session after they have booked a ticket.

You will need to register for a free Zoom account and download the Zoom app onto your device before the workshops. This process should take less than 15 minutes, but is recommended to do ahead of time.
