Workshop: Non-Boring Collaborative Writing with Hazel Edwards

When: 2:30 PM Sunday 19th of April
Where: The Mercure on Therry Street
Tickets: $30 General Admission, $50 Collaborator Double Pass (2 people)
Bookings: Click Here

Although arguably better known for There’s A Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake, Hazel Edwards rates f2m: the boy within as one of her most important works. Co-written with Ryan Kennedy, a man she’s known since he presented as a nine year old girl, Hazel knows a thing or two about collaborative writing, and has graciously agreed to run a very special workshop on non-boring collaborative writing.

If you are currently planning a collaborative work, Hazel suggests coming along together to get the most out of this workshop.

About the Presenter:
An avid reader (who read under the bedclothes and in the bath), as a young girl, Hazel Edwards wrote her first novel in grade six, a mystery about adventurous children stuck in a mine. This passion for writing and character development continued and after working as a secondary school teacher, at twenty-seven, Hazel published her first novel, ‘General Store’, a book based on life in a rural town.

Since then Hazel has written critically acclaimed childrens and young adult fiction, was awarded the Australian Antarctic Division Arts Fellowship in 2001, and in 2013 was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for services to literature.

When: Saturday 18th February, 2:30 PM
Where: The Mercure on Therry
Tickets: $30

Whether your getting on stage to present your work to your adoring fans, reading to camera for your YouTube channel or just wanting to get better at public speaking, performing for theatre or just giving a speech, sometimes the hardest thing to do is be funny. Be engaging. Be an amazing public speaker. Do you do the funny voices? Do you do character voices. How long should your pauses be? Are these even the right questions to be asking?

Thankfully, we’re here to help. Theatre Queen Karen Corbett is at Queermance to help us all speak better in public. Or for the public. They’re different, but complimentary skills. Grab yourself a ticket or festival pass, and join us for a one of a kind workshop.

About the Facilitator:
Karen Corbett is a Melbourne playwright, actor, director, educator and dramaturge. She has won Australian and international awards for her theatre and fiction, including the Jageurs Irish Australian Literary Prize and the Medal of Ulm for her most recent play Orphanage of the Animals. She was awarded the Murray Sutherland Prize for Outstanding Achievement & Contribution to Theatre at Melbourne University and her work has been nominated for two Premiere’s Awards.

2:00 PM Sunday 23rd of March 2014
Mercure on Therry Street

Some people store them under the bed. Some people have a special drawer. Others have a designated toybox. Others don’t know how half of the objects above are used. This workshop is for all those writers who are interested in seeing what’s out there in the world of sex toys! We will look at a wide range of sex toys available, from buttplugs, to vibrators, from strap-ons to nipple clamps.

Toy expert Louise Bourchier will explain how the various toys work, who commonly uses the different types of toys and how to maximise both fun and safety when using them (or writing about using them!). There will also be samples to look at. Possibly handle.
