Siteworks Workroom 2, 33 Saxon Street, Brunswick
Ever wondered what the secret is to getting your work published? Author and freelance writer, Emily Brewin, will provide a practical guide to navigating the process. From workshopping to pitching your fiction and non-fiction ideas, this session will provide useful information and industry insights as well as writing exercises to help you hone your skills. Drawing on her experience as a novelist and journalist, Emily will show you how to find a home for your next piece, and will provide a ‘toolkit’ of resources to keep you pitching long after the workshop is done.

With Environmental Performance Authority
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November, 3 pm - 9 pm, Brunswick - Fawkner
Come on a touring adventure exploring the rich sensations of Moreland! Traversing South to North one day, and North to South the next, Environmental Performance Authority (EPA) invite participants to follow the lead of their senses: to look, hear, smell, touch – even taste. SENSORY LINE focuses on the places in between that we might usually ignore, treating them as complex, valuable ecosystems. Through live performance and guided participatory activities, the journey will release beauty, surprise and vivid experiences from hitherto unremarked places through the changing atmospheres of day, evening and night.
