A Creative Workshop for Aspiring Storytellers

This engaging six-week workshop, hosted by The Greek Community of Melbourne, will commence on 6 February. The aim is to guide participants through a transformative creative writing journey, helping them shape their personal stories into compelling works that challenge prevailing narratives of self. Through dynamic writing exercises and literary examples, participants will acquire the skills and confidence to craft stories or poems drawing on the distinctiveness of their cultural and personal experiences.

With a wealth of experience in teaching creative writing and her own accomplishments as a poet, writer, editor, and broadcaster, Dr. Tina Giannoukos will lead participants to develop their creative expression through prose or poetry.

Expressing her excitement for the upcoming workshop, Dr. Giannoukos states: “In a diverse literary culture where dominant narratives still predominate, this workshop will guide participants to tell their own distinct stories. It will explore the art of transforming the personal into the imaginative. It’s not exclusively for writers but welcomes individuals from all walks of life. Whether you are an aspiring writer or simply curious about storytelling or poetry, this workshop will provide a welcoming space for creative discovery and expression.”

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Workshop will be conducted in English.

Registrations are limited.
