Koraly Dimitriadis

Join Koraly Dimitriadis, the Cypriot-Australian poet, performer and author of Love and F-k Poems (ποιήματα για αγάπη και για γαμήσι) and Just Give Me The Pills for a poetry workshop that will inspire you to push your creative boundaries, shed your inhibitions, and get to the heart of what it is you want to express creatively. Koraly’s writing spans the mediums of books, theatre, short stories, novels, films and she is also an actor and spoken word performer. Learn how to workshop your creative idea and see what medium it might fit into and the best way to express it. This intimate workshop with practical exercises, will require participants to be fully open to the experience of their truth, and sharing their writing and/or performance with others in the group. Bookings are essential.

Learning objectives:

  • Why do we care so much what people think and how does that affect our art
  • What are the consequences of writing honestly and how to overcome them
  • The process of becoming honest in your writing
  • How to write from that honest place and express it
  • Craft your own writing/performance
  • What is the best format for your piece
  • How to get your art out there and share it

Participants are asked to bring with them a small notebook and pen, as well as any ideas they have that they would like to work on in class, or any pieces of writing they are stuck on. There will be an opportunity for one-on-one time with Koraly during the class as well as time to work on your creative ideas. Please arrive 10 minutes early as we will start at the exact time.

As this workshop is limited to 20 participants, please confirm your attendance by calling 25372675.
