Shared Narratives

I’m very pleased to have been asked to participate in a lovely event called Shared Narratives at the Centre for Stories in July.

Shared Narratives is a discussion between Rosemary Sayer, Melinda Tognini and me on the process of interviewing, transcribing, and adapting other people’s stories for the written form. We have all written stories on behalf of others, and we had the opportunity to talk about that process together at the Perth Writers Festival earlier this year. That session proved very popular and so we are revisiting the topic, facilitated by fellow writer, Rachel Robertson, on Wednesday 20 July at the Centre for Stories.

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Centre for Stories, this is a social enterprise organisation that provides programs designed to gather, share and preserve the stories of Australians. Run by Caroline and John Wood from Margaret River Press they aim to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to tell, share and preserve the stories of their lives.

Their events usually sell out, so if you are interested in joining us, I suggest you reserve your place quickly.
