Come and join Penny Hancock at the launch of the new ARU Centre for Creative Writing, and enjoy a reading and Q & A about all things writing with some of our prize-winning graduates! Other guests sharing their work include: novelists Anni Domingo, Lynn Fraser, Jan Casey, and Paul Linggood, poet Kaddy Benyon, and short story writer Caroline Ward Vine.


If you’re inspired to get writing but aren’t sure where to start, here are some jumping off points I found useful.
