From Conception to Delivery

The full creative process in a Tasmanian landscape

Tasmanian writers and producers talk about the process of creating a piece of work here in Tasmania, and then trekking the path that will take them to the point where their work at last arrives before of its audience. Taking you through everything from writing, to securing funding, to production, this session will explore some unusual routes to ‘publishing’ which you might not have considered before. It will be a fascinating session for those interested in learning about different ways they might see their writing evolve and take flight before of an audience.
