Open Right

What a wonderful and inspiring evening we had at the State Library of Victoria last night, listening to award-winning author Cate Kennedy speak on her short story collection Like a House on Fire to an enthusiastic bunch of VCE English students and teachers.

Cate also shared a wealth of creative writing tips and tricks with us – from creating characters, to building tension, to metaphor and imagery, there was no stone Cate left unturned.

Cate left us with this fascinating insight into the curiosity that drives her writing: ‘When writing, I explore different experiences as an act of radical empathy.’

Thank you to the wonderful VCE students and teachers who came along, and watch this space for more events later in the year!
