FROM MY HEART TO YOURS -  ways of conveying the essence of my story, feeling or experience so that you are able to participate fully, or experience it as though it were yours.

Words as tools
words as weapons
words open doors
into hells or heavens

I want to show you my world - through my words. Let’s look at ways that may help or hinder that process. Let’s play with words, fling them around, choose them wisely, place them in careful order or jumble them into surprising patterns.  Words are the writer’s tools, and learning to use them well is the key to the art of writing.

An interactive workshop with lots of chances to juggle words about and send them flying into one another’s hearts and minds.

Dr. Terry Whitebeach is a Tasmanian writer, historian and community artist who has performed, presented conference papers and taught creative writing in community, workplace and educational settings. Her publications include poetry, radio plays, novels for young adults and biographies or life histories. She has taught creative writing for nearly four decades in most Australian states and territories and in USA, and has facilitated many community writing projects.  She has four adult children and lives in the bush in SE Tasmania in a little white house that was once St Stephen's church.  Before that, in the 1920s, it was a country school.
