The word is out

Maya will perform at The Write Stuff

Formed less than 12 months ago, The Write Stuff has attracted hundreds of central Victorians to its spoken word events this year.

An event on Sunday will be the collective’s last event for 2017.

It all happens at Bendigo’s MusicMan, 264 Hargreaves Street, from 3pm.

“The variation and diversity of writing styles, and subjects has been a pleasure to see and hear this year,” co-organiser Em Burgess-Gilchrist said.

Fellow organiser Simon Wooldridge said the group has had readers aged from 15, up to their 70s and 80s. 

“It’s great to attract such a broad range of people to these events,” he said. 

Speakers on Sunday include Hannah Lang, who also writes under the name Shadow Summit. 

Hannah writes fantasy and young adult fiction. 

Additionally, she has a fantasy transmedia project under the title, Ryllian Chronicles.

Tara Dean, a retired teacher, will be reading her work at the Write Stuff for the first time – a poem about the controversial recent same sex marriage survey.

There will be an open mic section towards the end of the evening.

Award-winning Castlemaine singer-songwriter Maya will perform a short set midway through the afternoon.

The Write Stuff brings together writers, readers and other interested folks in a relaxed, supportive and fun environment, exploring different genres and discussing all things writing-related.

All ages welcome. MusicMan is a licensed venue.

Entry is $2. Donations to The Write Stuff will go towards the 2018 publication of the first Write Stuff anthology of local writers’ work.
