A Writer’s Notebook

‘It is a good idea, then, to keep in touch, and I suppose that keeping in touch is what notebooks are all about.’ – Joan Didion, “On Keeping a Notebook”, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, 1968.

How many brilliant stories started as scribbled sentences in a journal or a memory fragment in a note-taking app? In this workshop, you will learn how to harness a magpie-like tendency to collect ideas, creativity, and full worlds on a page. Hear from award-winning author and prolific notebook-keeper Jennifer Down on how to become a better observer and recorder of yourself and the world around you – followed by some guided prompts to get you filling up your own notebook.

Presented in partnership with City of Yarra (Yarra Libraries)
