Writers’ Group with Kim Mahood
These sessions are an opportunity to bring your work-in-progress, (or your ideas for a work-in-progress) to a group discussion led by writer Kim Mahood.
Week 1: All participants will be asked to share an overview of a work-in-progress they would like feedback on.
Weeks 2 & 3: Across two weeks, each work-in-progress will be allocated time to receive group feedback. Participants will be required to complete readings of each other’s writing before the group begins.
Week 4: Will address specific questions that emerge from the earlier sessions.
There are no restrictions on genre, but participants will need to be able to outline their work or idea for the group, and bring excerpts to share and discuss.
Kim Mahood is the author of two non-fiction books, the recently-published memoir Position Doubtful, and the multi award-winning Craft for a Dry Lake, published in 2000. She wrote the much-circulated essay ‘Kartiya are like Toyotas – white workers on Australia’s cultural frontier’, and her work is published in art, literary and current affairs journals. Kim grew up in Central Australia, and is a regular visitor to Alice Springs.
