Writing Like You Don't Care What People Think with Koraly Dimitriadis | ACT Writers Centre | Sunday, 09. August 2020

Join Koraly Dimitriadis for a workshop that will inspire you to push your boundaries, shed your inhibitions, and get to the heart of what it is you want to express. If you are looking for a prescriptive workshop on the correct way to write, then this is not for you. This intimate workshop will require participants to be fully open to the experience of their truth, and sharing their writing and/or performance with the group.
About the Expert

She was awarded a Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowship for her novel Divided Island. Koraly is also an editor and publisher, and an opinion writer for the Australian media. She has been published in The Washington Post. Koraly was the recipient of the 2019 UNESCO City of Literature residency in Krakow.
About the venue
Harry Hartog Booksellers' ANU store, 153-11 University Avenue:
https://services.anu.edu.au/files/guidance/ANU%20Campus%20Map%202019.pdf
This Harry Hartog ANU store is located just beside the Kambri Precinct. Please just be aware that it is a very new building, and will not show up very accurately on Google Maps. Please refer to the map in the link above to help you find your way. The Harry Hartog ANU phone number is: 0477091650.
There are an array of cafes serving coffee and lunch options close by, and they are all open on Saturdays (tea, coffee, hot water, milk and biscuits are provided by the ACTWC.) The Harry Hartog team are happy to have you place some food in their fridge, and use their microwave, should you wish to bring your lunch.
Toilets are located just outside the Harry Hartog store, just a few metres away in the Kambri building.
The closest parking to the store is an underground carpark directly below Harry Hartog (with stairs or public lift access to ground level. Staff at Harry Hartog can provide swipe-pass lift access from ground level to the upper level of their store, where the workshop will be held.) Due to the newness of the precinct, this car park isn't clearly marked in maps. To find it, drive down Kingsley Street (off Barry Drive) and follow signage to the Drill Hall Gallery/Drill Hall Gallery parking. Follow Kingsley Street straight down to its culmination in an underground carpark and you will have the correct one. We recommend this parking option for people who cannot or do not wish to cover much ground to the workshop venue. It costs $5 for the whole day on a Saturday. Parking at Llewellyn Hall is a short stroll away.
