Local libraries to host ABC Open Workshops
PHOTOGRAPHERS, writers and film makers are invited to attend free ABC Open Workshops hosted by Whitsunday Regional Council libraries next week.
Mayor Jennifer Whitney said the ABC Open Workshops were a perfect opportunity for everyday people to pursue their interest in writing or photography.
“If you love taking photos or telling a story, I would encourage you to get involved with this fantastic program,” she said.
Writers interested in having their stories published online can enter the 500 words project and see it published on the ABC website. Those wanting to increase their online portfolio in photography or film-making can enter in the snapped project.
Mackay ABC Open journalist Dan Battley will be on hand monthly at the Proserpine, Beach and Bowen libraries to assist people with individual projects.
Beach Library team leader Kerry Dorman said the libraries were keen to provide further opportunities to assist the community to connect to the digital age.
“As well as your project being uploaded to ABC Open, it could feature across the ABC radio on radio, TV or online,” she said.
