|Seminar: The Art of Criticism||The Wheeler Centre - Performance space - CODE 7081|
Geordie Williamson (Chief Literary Critic, The Australian) and Nicholas Hasluck (author, chair of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize) explore practical approaches to literary criticism, including reviewing, literary prizes, and more.
Seminars feature two writers, on stage consecutively, who will present contrasting perspectives on the topic. The first writer will present for one hour, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A with the audience. After a 15 minute break, the second writer will present for one hour, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A with the audience. Sessions are designed to be constructive and informative, and will be presented for an audience interested in the 'craft' of the particular genre being discussed. Feel free to bring pens and paper, however these sessions are not workshops per se and will not necessarily include 'tasks' set for the audience.
