Four-day Writing & Editorial Workshop in Boneo/Cape Schanck, Victoria

Dr Susan Long

Dr Susan Long, author of many books and peer-reviewed articles, is offering a writing
workshop for those who want to find the genuine author in themselves. Writing can take many forms: academic theses, research reports, persuasive items, business reports, journalistic pieces, novels and poems. Although having different purposes and audiences, all writing can be creative, and all messes can be cleaned up later.  This workshop aims to help participants become authors of their written pieces; to discover the role of author; to allow their imagination to flourish. It also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

In the Writing workshop, participants will approach questions such as:
Why do I want to publish?
Who is my audience?
How do I choose a journal or publisher?
What do reviewers and editors look for?
How can I manage time for writing?
How do I present and develop an argument?
How should I work with case study material?
How can I understand and develop my style?
There will be time for writing and gaining feedback.

In the Publishing and editing day participants will be:
Introduced to the processes involved in the publication of edited work (as background to the editing process);
Introduced to the processes involved in editorial work;
Engaged in editing work that they have prepared in draft form;
Provided the opportunity for editing work that is not their own.

‘And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.’
– The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

‘The idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for awhile is just bliss.’
– J. K. Rowling

The National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA) offers internationally renowned post-graduate education and research, and decades of experience consulting with Australian organisations. In 2018, their annual Symposium will explore the dynamics of interoperability and work within the emergency and trauma sectors.

The study of organisation dynamics brings together socio-technical and psychoanalytic disciplines to explore the unconscious dynamics that exist in every group, team or organisation. Learning more about these theories, and reflecting on the experience of them, can support leaders and managers to unlock great potential in their organisations, tackling issues through a whole new light.
