Do you love to write but get stuck for inspiration? Stories are all around you, if you look carefully, and your hometown is bursting with them.

In this fun workshop, well-known writer Kim Kelly will take you on a virtual tour of Lithgow that will ignite your imagination. Lithgow’s landscapes and streetscapes, and the valley’s rich history, all have tales to tell. Myths, legends and family stories can inspire your own too – but no-one will tell the tales of your home the way you do.

Whether you dream of becoming a writer yourself or you just love telling tales, you won’t look at Lithgow the same way once you’ve begun Writing Home.

Bring pen and paper or other writing device.

Kim Kelly is the acclaimed Australian author of six novels, including the much-loved Black Diamonds, set in Lithgow during World War One.

A well-known book editor and literary consultant for Varuna, The National Writers’ House in the Blue Mountains, Kim has worked in the publishing industry for more than twenty years.

Kim is a passionate believer in the importance of all our stories. Her workshops are safe, inclusive spaces where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences, in an environment of respect for diversity.
