Pride Week Experimental Creative Writing Workshop Series
June 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join local Brimbank writer Jean Bachoura for an creative writing workshop where you will be challenged to develop your own unique style of experimental writing.
Jean Bachoura was an inaugural recipient of the Wheeler Centre’s scheme for writers, The Next Chapter. His work is reflective of a life lived between cultures: born in Damascus, raised in Syria, Lebanon and Australia. In 2016 he was awarded the Deborah Cass Prize for his piece ‘Night Falls’. In 2017 he wrote ‘No Man’s Land’, an account of his journey crossing the border into Syria. In 2019, his multi-platform project TRETINOIN was awarded The Lifted Brow & RMIT non/fiction Lab Prize for Experimental Non-fiction. In 2022, he released the video essay Not Financial Advice with Liminal Magazine and was awarded a Varuna Writers residency from the Griffith Review.
