Finding and Writing Yourself – a Workshop with Nevo Zisin

**This event has been CANCELLED, due to the risk of COVID-19.**

Sunday 29 March, 12-3pm, Geelong Library

Join Nevo Zisin, author of award-winning Finding Nevo for a workshop that tackles gender diversity, self-love and finding your voice. Nevo will discuss their own lived experience as a non-binary transgender person and investigate concepts of reclaiming one’s story through writing. Participants will explore their own relationships with gender, their bodies, and discover new tools for self-exploration and accessing authenticity.

Participants will be required to bring a pitch idea or outline, or a piece of writing to share in the workshop. This workshop is open to women and non-binary writers aged 16+.

Nevo Zisin is a Jewish, queer, non-binary writer, performer, activist and public speaker based in Naarm/ Birraranga / Melbourne. With a particular focus on issues surrounding gender, sex, culture and sexuality, they run workshops in schools and workplaces around trans issues. They are the author of award-winning Finding Nevo, a memoir on gender transition, and a contributor to the anthology, Kindred: 12 Queer #LoveOzYA Stories, as well as a member of the Gender Euphoria cast – Australia’s largest all trans and gender diverse show on a main stage.
