Creative Writing Workshops in Adelaide

I’m delighted to be running a series of writing workshops with the wonderful support of the Walkerville Council. These are workshops that I ran with great success while I was based in Hanoi, Vietnam. You can take one workshop, or do them all — it’s completely up to you. I’ve designed them to be fun, interactive and engaging – and you’ll get to meet other writers.

A little about me: I’ve written for Motorcycle Mojo, Entropy, Forbes, Get Lost, Word Vietnam, Flung and Go Overseas as well as major hospitality service providers in Hanoi. I’ve self-published short stories, blog regularly, and am working on my first novel. In a past life, I was an English teacher and have worked in public relations.


What: Writing workshops for adults
When: Fortnightly on a Saturday
Time: 9.30AM-12.30PM
Where: Walkerville Library, 66 Walkerville Terrace, Gilberton (parking at rear).
Cost: $35 per workshop via TryBooking.

Rock Your Writing With The Five Senses

Interested creative writing? Want to tell your story, but don’t know where to start? Not sure how to find your voice and style?

This 3 hour fun, practical and interactive workshop will engage the five senses to work on a guided piece of creative writing. You will use:

  • sound, sight, smell, touch and taste to paint a picture with words
  • details to draw your reader into your narrative
  • pictures and imagery to conceptualise a story (fiction or non-fiction).

You’ll leave the workshop with a piece of prose that could form the basis of a short story, essay – or even the great Australian novel!
