Friday@Furphy's - October
Join us for a discussion on writing for social change with Vivienne Glance. This topic is ever more meaningful during this Covid19 era, which has often highlighted the social divide. Much of Vivienne's writing (poetry, short stories, plays, etc) is informed by her values and activism.

Mattie Furphy House, Swanbourne WA 6010, Australia
About The Event
One of Vivienne's recent poems has been accepted into a Rights Of Nature (RONA) project taking place in Brisbane in October. A novel manuscript ‘Staring at the Sun’ is short-listed in an international competition for works that highlight a more sustainable world. Vivienne's book “Letters to Our Home” is another example of a creative writing project that is inspired by what she terms ‘artivism’. Vivienne has presented workshops for organisations such as Bob Brown Foundation to help people express their connections to the environment through creative writing.
