    Event description

    Sold out! - Please join our wait list

    Diving beneath your surface and into the heart of connection where we all live.

    Join us for a workshop designed so you become more aware of your interconnection with our local marine environment.

    You don’t need to be a confident writer to participate. You just need to “keep the pen moving”.

    A simple approach to writing - fostering connections within community, our environment and ourselves.

    Dive in for discovery, connection and to experience something special. 

    This workshop is held on dry land, in front of the sea at South Maroubra Surf Club.

    The workshop will begin with a Welcome to Country by Aunty Maxine Ryan

    Facilitated by Blanche De Winter, a local communications consultant with 30 years’ experience in public relations and writing. Blanche now runs life-story writing sessions in her community, inspired by the late Bridget Brandon.
