Byron Bay Summer School 2018

Pick up your pen and notebook and head to Byron Bay this summer to be part of the Breakthrough writing course with author and creative writing teacher Horst Kornberger and poet Jennifer Kornberger.

If you have lost your voice at school, in a job, in front of the computer, or in heartbreak, then this course is for you. Based on the timeless Celtic story, the Tale of Taliesin, it offers hope for those suffering from various forms of writer’s block – fear of beginning, re-occurring doldrums or granitic inaction.

The Tale of Taliesin is a story of poetic initiation. It tells of the birth of the bard out of Ceridwen’s cauldron of inspiration. In a series of easy-to-do writing exercises we will trace the steps of the bard to reclaim your voice. The five-day workshop is open to beginners and seasoned writers, and anyone who has a serious or playful interest in developing imaginative capacity.

WHEN            15 – 19 January 2018, 9am – 1pm 

WHERE          St Kevin's Parish Hall, 1 Deacon St, Bangalow, NSW

COST               $480
