Off the page goes off the charts

I’m in the midst of a big few weeks of off-the-page microlit activities. Over the last fortnight I’ve produced two works for Community Stations at Ringwood Station in Melbourne’s east. The first saw stencilled stories installed in various locations around the station.

The second was a performance writing project in which my alter-ego, Walter Wild (Word Wrangler) sought stories from passing commuters during 90 minute performances each morning for a week. (photo, thanks to Arts in Maroondah).

In a couple of weeks I’ll be heading up to Newcastle for the wonderful Newcastle Writers Festival where there’ll be more public stories in collaboration with Spineless Wonders. I’m looking forward to what should be a bit of a writing reboot in the Hunter Valley.
