A poetry workshop for professionals, punters and purists will be held next month at M.A.D.E.
In this four-hour workshop with widely published poet Emilie Zoey Baker, participants can explore what makes a great poem, how to perform your poetry and what judges look for in a competition.
Organisers believe this will be a fun, immersive day with lots of words, writing and participation.
In addition to running this workshop, Ms Baker will be judging the Martha Richardson Memorial Poetry Prize for 2016.
Places in the workshop are limited to 15 attendees only, so bookings are essential.
The workshop will be held on Saturday, July 9, between 10am and 2pm.
Participants are asked to take an unfinished poem and their favourite writing materials.
Cost for Ballarat Writers members is $70 (or $85 for non-members), concession: $60 (or $75 for non-members).
