Susan Midalia

Thinking and writing creatively.

Saturday 25th November and Sunday 26th November. 

Registrations close Friday, 24th November 5 pm .  Book now to avoid disappointment!


Memorable creative writing takes time. In our time-deprived, often frenetic world, this two-day writing retreat offers you a relaxed and stimulating environment in which to draft, reflect on and improve your writing. Fiction writer and editor Susan Midalia will offer guidance and individual feedback on your writing in the beautiful surroundings of the Peter Cowan Writers Centre. Just bring some writing implements, a love of language and story, and a willingness to try something new.

Susan Midalia has published three collections of short stories, all shortlisted for major literary awards: A History of the Beanbag; An Unknown Sky; and Feet to the Stars. Her first novel, the Art of Persuasion, will be published in April 2018. Susan is also a highly experienced workshop facilitator and editor, as well the judge of many short story competitions. She is currently on the board of writingWA and Margaret River Press, and is the Chair of the 2018 Perth Short Story Festival.
