Jacaranda Workshop #1: Pitching

  • University of Queensland (map)

You’re invited to our first workshop of the semester! This session will focus on you guys pitching your fantastic ideas to us. So come with your best brainstorming hats and get ready to bounce some ideas around! 

This workshop is for BOTH 'Jacaranda's Best Non-fiction' and 'Jacaranda's Best Short Stories', so anyone interested in publishing their work with either chapbook should come along.

We’ll also be joined by some senior writing students from the Masters of Writing, Editing and Publishing program here on campus. They'll be on hand to offer all their expert opinions, tips and tricks for honing in your gem of an idea. We’ll also have some volunteers from the wider writing community joining us with specific experience and interest in their areas (non-fiction and fiction). 

Please note that this session is ***not compulsory*** for you to submit to the Jacaranda Journals. But it is a great opportunity for us to run you through the standard of work we expect, how the publication's editorial process will work, and set you up on your way to writing or editing your best work ready for submission. 

The workshop also gives us a chance to meet your lovely faces (and for you to meet ours, too!). We want to encourage everyone to get to know their peers and feel included in a supportive, engaging and inspiring community of writers. Even if you don’t have any ideas yet or aren’t sure if you want to submit, feel free to come along, listen in and get chatting with us all!
