Caught in the Spell of Words

17-19 January

From Penitentiary to Peninsula

A 3-day orthography journey on the island with orthographic educators, Lyn Anderson & Ann Whiting in Tasmania.

Located in Tasmania, at the world renowned Port Arthur Historic Site, on the beautiful Tasman Peninsula, we will embark on a learning journey that will bring you deep understanding of the real structure of English spelling.

This course is suitable for anyone fascinated with the English language: it’s primarily for educators but also suitable for linguists, historians, parents/grandparents and those who are interested in collaborative scholarship.


  • $650.00 (includes lunch, morning/afternoon tea each day; coffee/tea throughout the day)
  • $335.00 for Peninsula teachers and residents
