Creative writing workshops at Melbourne’s Greek Centre for aspiring storytellers


An engaging six-week creative writing workshop, hosted by The Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM), will commence on February 6.

The aim is to guide participants through a transformative creative writing journey, helping them shape their personal stories into compelling works that challenge prevailing narratives of self.
Through dynamic writing exercises and literary examples, participants will acquire the skills and confidence to craft stories or poems drawing on the distinctiveness of their cultural and personal experiences.

The workshop will commence on February 6.

With a wealth of experience in teaching creative writing and her own accomplishments as a poet, writer, editor, and broadcaster, Dr Tina Giannoukos will lead participants to develop their creative expression through prose or poetry.

Expressing her excitement for the upcoming workshop, Dr Giannoukos states: “In a diverse literary culture where dominant narratives still predominate, this workshop will guide participants to tell their own distinct stories.”

Whether you are an aspiring writer or simply curious about storytelling or poetry, this workshop will provide a welcoming space for creative discovery and expression,” Dr Giannoukos added.

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Workshop will be conducted in English. Registrations are limited.
