Her Story

Participants: Hannah Kent, Kate Forsyth, Felicity McLean. Moderator Kate Evans.

Venue: Umina Beach Surf Lifesaving Club.


Hilary Mantel wrote: “women writers…can’t resist retrospectively empowering” women of the past. Do we agree … and does it matter? Each writer powerfully brings the past into the present, from the minotaur myth in Kate Forsyth’s latest novel The Crimson Thread, to Felicity McLean’s reimagining of Ned Kelly (spoiler: Ned becomes a girl, and she’s from the Coast!) and Hannah Kent’s impeccably researched tales of real and imagined women from history. 


Sunday 5th June, 10am – 12pm 

Character Writing Workshop

Mythic Creativity Retreat To Enchant & Empower Your Life

A week-long retreat at Springfield Farm in the Southern Highlands of NSW.  Morning workshops and afternoons free to daydream, write, create, rest and rejuvenate.


Re-discover your creativity and fill your life with enchantment, wonder and empowerment. Drawing on ancient myths and fairy tales, this retreat with Dr Kate Forsyth and Kinchem Hegedus in the glorious Southern Highlands celebrates storytelling, poetry, art and the making of things with hands and heart. It is designed to help you find a new sense of meaning, purpose and connection to the human and natural world, as well as an opportunity for a cleansing of your body and spirit. Dr Kate Forsyth draws on her doctorate in fairy tales and mythology, and her many years of creative practice as a poet, novelist, oral storyteller and retreat leader, to help you follow your bliss and awaken to a life of creative joy.

This retreat is for any woman who longs to re-discover her joy in creativity.

“Myths and fairy tales, like art and poetry, are potent distillations of the human psyche, speaking in the mysterious language of the deep unconscious: allegory and archetype, metaphor and motif, symbol and synchronicity. They are the quintessence of wonder and wisdom.’

Kate Forsyth
