We’ll weigh up the pros and cons of self-publishing, and look at the changes being brought to the industry by digital publishing.

Cost: Full price:
$165; Member: $115; Conc Member: $100

Annie Proulx once said that Brokeback Mountain isn’t about two gay cowboys; it’s about the West and its sense of place. The expression ‘a sense of place’ is a critical catchphase that often defies clear understanding.  As readers we know when a writer has created a ‘great sense of place.’ But what does that mean? It’s hopelessly vague. In this course students will meticulously consider the techniques used by writers to convey ‘a sense of place’, as well as looking at the role it plays in creative writing. When writing about place, the writer must consider more than just its physical attributes or location. .....

Throughout the centuries, poets have tried to capture moments of spiritual awakenings when the world as we know it falls away and we enter a different realm. We return changed, having become part of an experience that liberates us and transforms us, however momentarily, into a new self, touched with an awareness we did not possess previously. These moments of grace, as they are often called, are not exclusive to any religion, tradition or culture. They exist primarily at an elemental level but fill us with understanding, love and compassion of humanity that is universal. Moments of grace occur often in encounters with silence, stillness, light, love, music, birds/

Forget the twee meaning of the word. Go back to the dictionary: Charm – to delight, to control. This is the writer’s job, the only job. Too often we get sidetracked. When we let inspiration lead us too far, the results are often unmanageable and unengaging. If we sit down to write because we think we should, things turn flaccid just as quickly. Or we might do the work that needs to be done, outlining the hell out of an idea, developing characters and injecting them into structurally sound plotlines – only to find ourselves with a short story that is technically correct and lifeless. .....
