Robyne with an “e” (Young)
A free fun filled entertaining evening for all adult arts lovers and practitioners. Bring a friend or two along.
Artist: Local writer Robyne Young
Robyne has 30 years experience in media, marketing and communications working with newspapers, TV and radio. She writes fortnightly for the Border Mail through her column “Robyne with an E” in which she tackles topics including gambling, religion, education for women, cyber bullying and social networking, and the lighter side of life including escaping chooks!
Robyne writes poetry as well as fiction and is currently writing a novel. She has coordinated the Write around the Murray Festival for the past three years.
Come along and relax while listening to Robyne read some of her poetry; and short stories published in the collection The Basket and the Briefcase.
“Your stories are so beautifully told with warmth and humour, so simply written yet with such surprises at the end and a depth of intensity of emotion…” Alice Pung on reading “The Basket and the Briefcase”
Listen to and discuss with Robyne her views on
- · different approaches to writing
- · ways of dealing with the big issues and traditional themes
- · Contemporary approaches to “getting the message across” through writing and similarities with methods used in the visual arts.
- · Challenges in the writing industry today and how these connect with the challenges facing the visual artist.
