Writing Criticism Now - Thursday 12 April, 6:30pm-8:30pm
In the latest issue of Newswrite Geordie Williamson and Angela Meyer discuss the difference between literary criticism when written for print and online. Williamson says to write a good review “you have to find a way to encode all that knowledge in relatively brief pieces using straightforward jargon-free language”
There has never been a better time to look at where critical writing is now in Australia. With more and more content produced each year, are we going to see a rise in critics? Or is it a lost art form? What is the difference between writing criticism on the page and for radio or TV? How much is an opinion worth? How do you form one and how do you get it out there? Join Mark Mordue and Alice Tynan in conversation with Ed Wright as they discuss the ins and outs of writing about other people’s work.
Join us on Thursday 12 April from 6:30pm-8:30pm for a panel discussion with free drinks and refreshments. Talking Writing is a great opportunity to meet and connect with other writers and is free to members of the NSW Writers’ Centre. Tickets are $20 for outside guests.
