Default Creative Writing Workshop - Creative Project exclusive to Charters Towers

My Precious Past
A Fun Creative Writing Workshop! *Exclusive to Charters Towers’ residents

Awakening Your Inner Creativity and Preserving ‘Your Precious Past’...

“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment.”

“You look at old family photos and wonder ‘what was their life like?’ Start now writing about your childhood memories to pass along to your children and grandchildren. Don't leave them wondering.”

When, Where, What and What After:
November 2010, over 2 weeks, meeting Monday & Wednesday, each week, with Charters Towers’ Venue to be announced.

Workshop Modules:
‘Lest We Forget’: A short activity and writing stirring-up such thoughts as: Who made a difference in your family? What was life like when the person was in his/her 20’s? How has life changed? Compare the person’s past and your present. Was life better then or better now? Explain how and why. How did the person make a difference? What can we learn from the person? How and why should the person be remembered?

‘Good Old School Days’: An activity involving an hour or more awakening your senses of sight, sound and touch, as you write about this.

‘Of Course You’ll Remember a Lot’: Ten fun ways to trigger your memories of your past and of your families and friends...and great experiences!

‘Family Writing, Made Easy as Pie’

‘Dictionary Creative Writing Prompt Fun’

‘Similes, Metaphors and More’

‘Writing about Someone’s Hand, Prompts Super Creative Writing’

‘Simple Steps to a Stupendous Family Biography’

Cost for the 16-hour workshop, over 4 days: $45 per participant *Limited to 12 participants. A fund-raiser for Joanne’s self-publishing project. Registrations close October 28, 2010.
Phone ‘Joey’ Joanne Galliher 0437786379
What After (this workshop)?

‘OK. Time to Give-it-a-Go’ - Joanne (Joey) Galliher, the workshop presenter, will visit you in February 2011, at your home, to see how your Family Biography is blooming (at no charge).

‘A Writing Competition’ , April 2011– A volunteer committee of local residents will review workshop participants’ writing projects ( short stories) and there’ll be Prizes: 1st, 2nd and 3rd donated by Joanne (Joey), with Charters Tower’s residents invited to her Free and Fun Reading of Excerpts, from her novel: EAGLES OF THE RAINBOW: Some Called Them Half Breeds (with fun activities for audience participation).

It is hoped that local artists will display their Works of Art – photography, paintings, etc.
Artists, please contact Joey by 28 Oct. 2010 on 0437786379
