Write Your Way Forward

Write Your Way Forward is a monthly poetry/creative writing workshop series facilitated by award-winning poet Cameron Semmens

Would you like to:

  • – discover your voice as a writer?
  • – find the right words to express your feelings?
  • – get the literary skills to not just express, but also – impress?
  • Then this for you!

“Let me help you tap into the deep well of inspiration you have within, and find those words and stories you need to share!” – Cam

Suitable for ADULTS and TEENAGERS. You don't have to be experienced – you just have to be keen!

The details – 2 venues:

Upwey (Vic) : the second Sunday of every month (with the EXCEPTION of July – that will be one week earlier)
Balwyn (Vic) : the last Sunday of every month

UPWEY: 25 Matson Drive, Upwey, VIC (My house!)
1pm – 4:30pm with a good half-hour afternoon tea break in the middle.
You could bring something to share, and have a cup of tea or coffee here at my house,
or just pop over to the Skylark cafe (straight across the road)

BALWYN: Bar Sur Loup – 115 Bulleen Road, Balwyn North VIC
1pm – 4:30pm with a good half-hour afternoon tea break in the middle.

To bring:
Bring whatever you are comfortable writing in – notebook, pad, tablet or laptop.
And some snacks for yourself, or to share if you'd like to.

If you can't make a certain session:
This workshops is part of a workshop series running monthly through until October IN TWO VENUES on different weeks. So, the good news is: they are all independent sessions (so come to whichever you can make it to); also: if, over the months, you can't make your local chosen session, you can consider coming to the other venue – as the session will be essentially the same.

Cost and Payment:

Pay as you go $60 (concession $40) – bookings preferred to secure your place.
