I have delivered a number of creative writing courses at Writers Victoria, including the Year of the Short Story. I have also run creative writing workshops for the Bass Coast Writers (Inverloch), Flemington Library, Portland Writers Group, Far South Coast Writers (Merimbula), West Coast Writers (Geelong’s surf coast) and Scribes Writers (Geelong). If you would like more information about my workshops or if you would like to make a booking, please contact me today.
Praise for my workshops:
“Paul has been part of Writers Victoria’s Annual Program since 2008. From short workshops to year-long series, Paul demonstrates versatility in his teaching skills. His hands-on experience as a professional writer provides the valuable expertise, practical know-how and focus he has as facilitator and mentor.”
Mary Napier, Program Manager, Writers Victoria
Comments from Writers Victoria participants:
- “Paul was personable, honest, willing to share personal experiences . . .”
- “Completely met and surpassed all expectations!”
- “Paul is a great teacher. I learnt a lot about short stories and I already knew quite a bit. It was awesome.”
- “Great themes per session. Learnt so much. Paul is a great teacher.”
“Paul concentrated on each writer finding and recognizing their voice, and allowing it to come through strongly in their written work. Despite the number , all present were able to have individual attention and a short piece of work critiqued, while the group as a whole engaged enthusiastically in the process and much lively debate was generated. All participants came away energized through Paul’s competent expertise and direction.”
Anna Buck, Program Manager, Far South Coast Writers Inc. 2004-2009.
“I wish to acknowledge and congratulate you on the quality of the weekend workshop you presented to Scribes Writers. The members were still on a high when we turned up at 9.30 on [the following] Monday morning.”
