Mindful Writing with Sharon Thrupp
Chenrezig Institute 9:00am - 3:00pm
Club, General Interest, Hobbies, Social, Special Interest
33 Johnsons Road
Eudlo , Queensland, 4554
During the day we learn how to research, gather, and write travel stories about any place on the planet – from the next suburb to the next continent. Everywhere is a tourist destination for someone.
You’ll explore the qualities of a mindful travel writer and the many ways to write about a destination mainly from a first person experience as well as the practical side of travel writing – itineraries, communication and logistics.
Good stories aren’t about how exotic your destination is, it’s about providing a compelling narrative for your reader and looking at the principle of ‘show, don’t tell’, plus how to use dialogue or direct quotes from the ‘characters’ you meet along the way.
Come along for a fun day and to write and share your travel stories.
Saturday 19th October 9:00am - 3:00pm, held in the Tara Room.
Facility fee $25
Accommodation and meals available separately.
Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
