Hello, Snowy Valleys! Life Writing Workshops are a celebration of our region, its people and their stories. It is supported by Council, and run by award-winning playwright Hannie Rayson and ABC theatre-buff Michael Cathcart 

This initiative has been partly funded by the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund. 

 Life Writing Workshops

If you’re thinking about writing your own life story – or the story of someone close to you – this is the winter workshop for you. In a series of six group sessions, Michael and Hannie help you to identify your own stories, develop powerful techniques for writing them down, and help you to structure your book. They’ve helped hundreds of people to write their own life stories.

The Life Writing workshops will be held over four Sundays at the Batlow Library - Applications for the workshops has now closed.


More about your hosts.

Hannie Rayson began her professional life in community theatre at Theatre Works in 1980. Since then, her plays have been produced throughout Australia and internationally. She works in theatre, film and television and writes a column for The Age newspaper.

But always her passion is to hear the stories of Australia told by Australians. In all their diversity.

“Hearing Aussies tell stories in our rich and colourful vernacular is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s how I met Michael and why we fell in love. We both love this stuff.”

Michael Cathcart is an award-winning historian, theatre director and ABC broadcaster. He is taking 10 weeks leave for the project.

Michael and Hannie are moving to the Snowy Valleys region for the duration of this project.
