    Event description

    Dr Bruce Powell was Australia’s longest-serving State Director of Organ and Tissue Donation, a highly experienced Anaesthetist, and Head of Department in Intensive Care Unit at Rockingham Hospital, Western Australia.

    In 2018, Bruce’s medical career was ended by a terrible cycling accident. Luck was with him that day and despite his multiple injuries, he survived. Major brain trauma, along with shattered chest, hands, spine and jaw, has ended his working life and remains a daily challenge.

    β€œDespiteΒ everything, the daily struggles to find a newΒ normal,Β I still feel that I’m lucky, because I survived to have another go at living.”

    Bruce feels that he has been gifted precious time to explore a broad range of exciting, stimulating activities - including writing.

    Join Bruce for this unique 2-hour nonfiction writing workshop, where he covers such topics as:

    • Where to start - do you know what you want to say?
    • A look in the mirror - who am I?
    • Dealing withΒ uncertainty - in writing and in life
    • The importance of reading
    • Finding your passion and your voice

    "Perhaps, by taking time to write down some of your story, you will find the β€˜why’ so that others might too."
