A workshop by Michael Veitch

2.30PM – 3.30PM
Drawing Room
University House, ANU

Michael Veitch is an author, actor and broadcaster best known for his roles in the D-Generation, Fast Forward and Full Frontal as well as his books on WWII aviation, travel and marine science. In this workshop, Michael will help you find your story. Everyone has a story! The retelling of facts, in a way that excites an audience is always a daunting task. It takes a certain visual storytelling method to weave facts into form. Bring your ideas and then just listen to some amazing tips and techniques so you can tell your story.

Performer, writer and broadcaster, Michael Veitch began his career during the heyday of 1980s Australian sketch comedy in such iconic shows as D-Generation and Fast Forward, before progressing to stage performance and newspaper writing. For several years, he presented the national TV arts program, Sunday Arts on ABC Television and broadcast across the country for ABC radio.

He is the author of eight published books, ranging from his interest in the stories of the airmen of the Second World War, to the exploration of the islands of Bass Strait, and the story of CSIRO's endeavours in marine science. His latest book Hell Ship was released through Allen & Unwin in July this year.
