If you’ve been paying attention to all things Brow—and if you haven’t, why haven’t you?—you’ll know that we recently ran an experimental non-fiction workshop as part of the lead-up to The Lifted Brow & non/fictionLab’s Prize for Experimental Non-fiction. You’ll also probably know that all the places in that workshop were booked so, so quickly: like lickety-split quickly; like “by the time we went to tell people about it on our website it was already booked out” quickly. This was obviously both good and bad news: good news insofar as it shows just how popular experimental non-fiction is,* and bad news insofar as many people who wanted to attend the workshop either had to settle for a live stream, or simply not participate.
Here, then, is some news that’s only good, and not at all bad: we’ll be running a repeat workshop (in a larger capacity venue) on May 14! As with the first, it will be led by Lifted Brow editor Ellena Savage and long-time contributor Rebecca Harkins-Cross. As with the first, it will be held in Melbourne, Australia, and as with the first, the introductory lecture will also be streamed across the internet for your listening/slideshow reading pleasure if you can’t make it to Melbourne on the day.
You can book your place in the workshop – free for subscribers and RMIT students/staff, $20 for everyone else – by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to stream the workshop – free for subscribers and RMIT students/staff, $10 for everyone else – please send an email to the same address. (Electronic mail: we’re mad for it; it’s gonna be huge.)
Want to know more about what this workshop will entail before you commit your precious money/time to it? Lookie here: a link to the (second) Experimental Non-Fiction Workshop page is just here for your clicking pleasure. Or you could just look at these lovely photographs from the first workshop and imagine yourself in them. See how much fun everyone is having? Wouldn’t you like to have as much fun as these people?
