    Pat Bruce, Hagan Mathews, Philip Thiel

    Ekphrasis writing and the creative spirit of art and literacy: A collaborative outcome with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education students and the Potter.

    Keenly interested in the creative writing process as a means to understanding our world, and imparting these skill to secondary students, three Melbourne Masters of Teaching students will discuss their practice along a writing workshop at The Potter before reading poems in response to Tim Jones’ sculpture Covert 7 city, 1988.

    Pat Bruce is engaged with songwriting in his spare time, as well as some voluntary journalism, and has been known to dabble in poetry on occasion.

    Hagan Mathews is a musician, writer and teacher in training. He is a former editor of Farrago student magazine and currently works as enrolments and marketing coordinator at Alia College.

    Philip Thiel is a blogger who has worked for the University of Melbourne, Museum Victoria and the Uniting Church.

    No bookings required.
