Graeme Gibson has a background in adult learning, principally in the environmental and community services sectors. His approach to learning is that people learn from and with each other, not just from a teacher. He also works as a group facilitator and mediator, getting close to people’s core concerns. Graeme has been presenting writing workshops, including life story & writing about place, since 2013. These have been mostly in regional areas – he likes to get around.
Most of his writing is non-fiction with a focus on nature, community, politics & their intersection. He has published essays, contributed to and edited a number of short story collections and self-published Beyond Fear and Loathing: Local politics at work. This account of local politics and community activism is based on personal experience. He is currently working on a memoir and a social and environmental history of the Richmond River.
