Whats On : April 2009
WRITER’S WORKSHOP Fact vs. Fiction: writing fiction with a social message Barry Levy, author and journalist from South Africa presents a hands-on workshop for writers. This workshop will cover a brief history of the author and his work as a journalist in South Africa in the apartheid years, his extensive writing on social issues in Australia and how harsh social circumstances can develop the writer’s eye. The author will also show how the realism of journalistic interviews and stories can be turned into creative writing by giving actual examples from his recent novel As If!. Saturday 4 April 9.30am-12.30pm This workshop will enhance participants’ literary awareness and insight into writing with a social message and discuss which is the more effective form of issue-based writing – fact or fiction. Barry has won multiple awards including the Australian Human Rights Award for Journalism, Anning Barton Memorial Award for Outstanding Journalism and was a Queensland State Finalist in the Walkley Awards.
