Workshops

Here’s your chance to connect with other writers and workshop your skills and techniques together.

The CWC Student Writing Workshops are run by a student coordinator and student volunteers on the Curtin University Bentley Campus. These peer-to-peer workshops are an excellent opportunity for CWC members to collaborate and build on their writing skills and techniques that will assist you no matter which degree you are studying. In each workshop you will also practice giving constructive criticism and feedback, which will help both you and your peers to become better writers and editors.

Here’s our program for 2017 Semester 2, week-by-week:

Each workshop will be run twice each week during semester. If you are a member, you are welcome to attend as many as you like. If you are not a member, you can still come along. Opportunities to become a member are available at the workshops.


Workshop Materials

The Curtin undergraduate writing units that are the basis of the workshop plans are from the Creative Writing, and Professional Writing and Publishing majors. For a course structure for professional writing use the search terms humanities pdf MJRU-PRWRP, and for creative writing humanities pdf MJRU-CRWRI. Consider using units for your electives or completing a major or a minor in these areas.

Discuss your options with the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts in room 208.428 or call them on +61 8 9266 7140.

Kathleen Knight – Workshop Coordinator
I had a whole career in business before I realised that I absolutely love writing and storytelling. This is the third year of my Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) degree doing the double major of Professional Writing and Publishing, and Creative Writing. These streams allow me to tap into my skills, knowledge, and experience and to let my imagination run wild. Being involved with the club’s writing workshops and feedback circles also feeds my need to share knowledge. I’ve had short stories published and will soon have a poem published in the Curtin/Aberdeen University Edge-To-Edge Anthology.
