Workshop: Michael Mohammed Ahmad
‘Good writer’ masterclass wth Michael Mohammed Ahmad
In 2016, award-winning author and director of Sweatshop: Western Sydney Literacy Movement, Dr Michael Mohammed Ahmad wrote a highly controversial and widely acclaimed essay for the Sydney Review of Books called ‘Bad Writer’, which examined some unhealthy attitudes towards creative writing within the Australian literary industry.
The essay also detailed some of the practices and skills developed in the Sweatshop Writers Collective, which Ahmad has been running for the past decade.
In this workshop, Ahmad now offers a Sweatshop-style masterclass, which will give participants a first-hand experience of the kind of full-intensity creative writing model involved in being a ‘good writer’.
The workshop will include a series of creative writing and reading exercises and live critical discussions.
