Writing about your work
Sunday 28 July 2024: 11:00am - 4:00pm, with Donald Hutera


This online workshop is for anyone who wants to develop their skills to be able to write about their dance work in a compelling and engaging way.

Spend some time online with writer, critic and performer Donald Hutera and your peers to hone and sharpen your writing style.

By taking this course you will:

  • Learn to appreciate different and comparative approaches to writing about yourself and your work
  • Gather details of own accomplishments and aspirations before beginning to shape and polish that wealth of raw material
  • Grasp the possibilities of written language to capture the essence of who you are and what you do as artist/practitioner
  • Gain insights into how to develop clarity, precision, beauty, grace, pleasure and pride in your use of words.
This online workshop is ideal for both early career and more experienced artists who wish to develop their practice and learn from each other.
