National Conference Talk…Suicide Prevention Australia

Hey guys, last week I was asked to represent my organisation that I am working for at the National Suicide Prevention Conference. I work within an Indigenous school program that is seeking to reconnect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths to culture and also to talk about mental health. It was an amazing conference – where I learnt many things from the other participants and speakers, there was a variety of organisations represented.

A wonderful time of talking to each other about how we can work together in our common cause of reducing suicide rates in Australia.

I met some beautiful people, especially Francesca a psychologist from Italy and Billy Jo, and Aboriginal Program Coordinator from the Northern Territory.

I thought I would just share this as it was significant for me. Though my next blog will go back to being about writing. 🙂 I am editing, writing elements of my novel at the moment.

Kind regards, Suz

Amazing Memoir/Family History Retreat!

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you know about an event I will be part of coming up in March this year. If you are interested in writing memoirs or your family history this will be an amazing weekend to be inspired and also learn how to map, plan and create your memoir!

I will be speaking at the Saturday evening dinner, about how writing therapy intersects with writing our memoirs and how we can be free from aspects of our lives. This will be a fun dinner where we can all interact and get to know each other.

There are four other phenomenal writers who will be speaking at the retreat. Below is a list of the authors speaking and inspiring writers to write their memoirs or family history. Come along, connect with other writers, learn and expand your thinking, and have a fabulous time doing it. 🙂
