Roma residents have a chance to share their stories

EVERYONE has a story to tell, but sometimes you may not be able to express it in a way that you feel does it justice.

Lecturer of Creative Writing at QUT Dr Donna Hancox will be running a two-day workshop at the Roma Library to help guide people in telling their stories.

“We have a great team of people who will be attending the workshops with all sorts of communication skills,” Dr Hancox said.

“We will work with you to find what your story is about and help draw out that story.”

Dr Hancox said people who attend the workshops don’t need to come along with anything but can bring an object or a photograph to help them with inspiration for their story.

“You don’t need to bring anything, you just need an idea and a lot of enthusiasm,” she said.

“Everyone has a story.”

Workshop attendees will develop short stories that will either be oral, written or on digital platforms and these stories will then uploaded on a digital writing platform that everyone will have access to.

The workshops run over both days this weekend, with a 9.30am start on Saturday and 9am start on Sunday.
