March Seminar 2020: Diving Deep into Story

This event has been cancelled

Acting on advice from the health authorities, we have very reluctantly cancelled this event.

Literature is the lifeblood of the English classroom and we all endeavour to make our classrooms creative spaces, helping students to experience the pleasures of responding to and creating literature. This seminar will explore diverse ideas related to creativity in English.

The keynote address What is now proved was once only imagined  will be presented by Assoc. Professor Kim Wilkins, UQ, Award winning Brisbane-based author and teacher of Creative Writing, This will be followed by two sessions of workshops.

The program is available here. Venue is Brisbane Grammar School. The AGM and keynote address will be held in the Centenary Hall (frst building inside the entrance) and workshops will be in the Lilley Centre. A map of the school can be found at https://www.brisbanegrammar.com/About/FacilitiesandMaps/Documents/BGS_Map.pdf
