Runs online via Zoom, 6PM – 7:30PM on Wednesday 27 January.
Noè Harsel is mix of Japanese, Polish and Russian ethnicities. She is also Jewish, American and Australian. This amalgam has created conflict, fear, loathing, pride and joy (and that is just one day!). When trying to write about sensitive and personal subject matters, Noè has had to work out how to recognise her own issues and contend with intersections of identity, race and culture. Join her as she unpacks how this happened for her.
You don’t need to bring anything but an open mind – this will be a very personal discussion.
You will learn:
- Starting your personal story
- How sometimes you get in your own way
- Writing can teach you about yourself
- To listen to the small stories around you
- About writing through your confusion.
Noè Harsel is a strategic communications professional working in the arts and culture spaces. She is currently Chair of Writers Victoria, host of Live Write, an online writers group, and co-creator of the IGTV show, Sless to Harsel, which is an irreverent look at books, writing and friendship. Noè has had articles and short stories published in a number of magazine and anthologies. Her current novel-in-progress explores the cultural intersection between Japanese and Jewish histories.
