NEWLY RELEASED PROSE MEMOIR:
OUT OF COPLEY STREET: A WORKING-CLASS BOYHOOD
'A dry, sparkling clarity, a pure tone that hovers on the edge of laughter: these stories are a revelation.' - Helen Garner
'A rollicking slice of an unlikely life.' - Tim Winton
This engaging childhood memoir, set in Adelaide's inner-northern suburbs in the '50s and '60s, shows Geoff Goodfellow to be a true wordsmith.

Geoff has had extensive experience nationally and internationally and can engage with people from all walks of life. He is highly skilled in showing and encouraging people to tell their own stories.
GEOFF'S PROSE WRITING WORKSHOPS FOCUS ON 'LIFE WRITING'.
POETRY WORKSHOPS FOCUS ON:
drug & alcohol abuse
post-traumatic stress disorder
mental health issues
industrial & employment issues
200-plus Grade Ten boys seated in rows in our assembly hall for almost two hours… A Writers’ Workshop class populated by the most creative minds in the school… A classroom full of our most academically disengaged and at-risk senior students… A collection of teachers sitting in the staffroom with cups of tea in their hands.
…I have seen The People’s Poet, Geoff Goodfellow, captivate all of the above, holding them in the figurative palm of his hand and hanging on his every word.
