Urban and suburban environments contain intriguing features that can be the starting points for stories. Hone your eyes to old signage, details of architecture, traces of the past, and the poetry of the everyday. Inspired by the Situationists and the ideas of psychogeography, we will investigate how ordinary places are rich source material. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction or memoir, insights from this workshop will stimulate ideas.

A follow-on exercise from the workshop offers participants the opportunity to receive brief written feedback on one short piece of writing.

The workshop is targeted to residents in and around the Albury Wodonga region. An outcome of the workshop will be the development of a local psychogeography wordpress blog for the publication of photography and writing prompted by participation in the workshop. Please contact us if you wish to do the workshop but live beyond the catchment area for this session (i.e. you live further than 150km from AlburyWodonga) and we'll add you to a waiting list.

Online logistics: This workshop will take place on Zoom for a maximum of 16 participants. You'll receive your login code and password by 9am on the morning of the workshop. The workshop is best accessed via computer in order to see visual materials.

Listen to Nick Gadd's Psychogeography talk as an introduction to the workshop.
