Loosen up everyone!  Come prepared to play! Have fun finding new ways of being inspired to write. Try dancing an artwork, clapping a sentence or humming a poem. Be prepared to play and be prepared to write. Be prepared to tap into your sense of humour!

Most writers know instinctively that words contain rhythm and energetic power well beyond the abstract alphabet. The ebb and flow of this power is connected to their body. Let Liana show you energy and rhythm and how to re-embody the writing process.

Have fun experimenting with various forms of bodywork and anarchic cross-connections between different kinds of art.

Everyone is welcome. Be they beginners, or experienced writers, and at any level of fitness or mobility. Bring comfortable clothes and two short poems of your choice and come to Tom Collins House, in the Heritage Precinct, Cnrs Kirkwood & Wood Street, Swanbourne on Saturday 29th October 1.30 – 4.30pm

Cost: $45 full, $35 unwaged, $30 FAWWA member. For further information, or to avoid disappointment, please book through TCH: 93844771; or email
