Prose masterclass : Writing about bodily trauma with writer Heather Taylor Johnson Other events...
Join writer Heather Taylor Johnson in giving your illness narrative meaning, not a label.

David Foster Wallace famously said "The role of literature is to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed". In the case of an illness narrative, the author is both the one doing the disturbing and the one who is disturbed, so it’s no wonder illness is such an intimidating topic. This workshop will help you to claim the titles of 'disturber' and 'disturbed' and find the right balance. We will talk about fiction and non-fiction, and open up a space in which we can blur the two, a space in which we can use the 'I' without naming the 'I.

Refreshments will be provided.

Presented as part of the UWA WINTERarts Festival 2017.
Speaker(s) Heather Taylor Johnson (writer and editor of Shaping the Fractured Self)
Location Love House Seminar Room, 28 Broadway, Nedlands 6009
