Transforming Writers Festival in Warburton March 7-10, 2013


Warburton, a pristine river town in the Upper Yarra Valley, will host first-time event ‘Transforming Writers’ this March.

With a focus on writing and expression that supports personal and social change and development, and an emphasis on community, interdependence and collaboration, this series of weekend workshops will appeal to anyone interested in enhancing their own writing and storytelling skills for both personal and professional development. Participants will be of varied backgrounds and experiences and no writing experience is required.

Transforming Writers is the first event of its kind and seeks to build a sense of belonging and genre for writers whose focus is transforming in nature and fosters change, for example in areas of environment, social justice, community and spirituality. Co-founder Lindy Schneider says, ‘Transforming Writers touches on both the way writing is able to transform us as people, and on the power of our words to transform others.’
