Writing Workshops - let us help you tell your story

23 November 2023
| 10:00 - 13:00

We invite you to attend a series of workshops to help you write a poem, short story or essay on a topic of your choice.  

These writing workshops are for those living with or caring for someone living with cancer, as well as Peter Mac staff members and volunteers.

Catherine Deveny will be facilitating these workshops. She is a writer, comedian, speaker and author of ten books.

She wrote ‘Mental: Everything You Never Knew You Needed to Know about Mental Health’ (Black Inc Books) with Professor Steve Ellen, former director of Psychosocial Oncology at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

All writing levels are welcome and you only need to bring something to write on such as a notebook, ipad or laptop. Places are limited and light refreshments will be provided.
