What’s it about?

It’s my pleasure to share my love of creative writing with you. The weekend creative writing workshop support you to take time out to be with the ideas and musings within, giving them space to emerge and hopefully delight, inspire and possibly even surprise. The creative writing workshops are also about getting to know new people, experiencing how the landscape can inspire creative writing and exploring voice.

The creative writing workshop allows you to explore hitherto unknown parts of the self, through the process of writing creatively. In the workshop you will develop skills in narrative writing, connect with others and share your stories in a safe and supportive environment.

Although you can write in any genre you wish, we will focus on the following aspects of storytelling including:

  • characterisation
  • setting
  • plot
  • structure 
  • voice
  • writing style.

 

We will explore more experimental types of narrative writing, including:

  • fictocritical writing
  • nature writing
  • intergeneric writing. 


The amount we will get through depends on the length of the workshop. 

Interested?
