Event description

Description

7 September – Beat Writer’s Block

Do you want to write but don’t know where to start? Have you started a project but are now stuck and need an impetus to continue? This informal workshop will provide enjoyable and productive writing exercises to stimulate your imagination and get you back on track. It will encourage you to ‘play’ with ideas and discover your creative focus. Whether you want to write fiction or non-fiction, we will look at the elements that make a good story, and how to transform ideas into words. All levels are welcome.


5 October – Create Engaging Characters

Every tale needs great characters! They capture our interest – and sometimes our hearts – and the story revolves around them. This workshop will investigate what makes compelling characters and how we can use our own observation and imagination to bring them to life on the page. While this is particularly true of fiction, it also applies if you’re writing a memoir or family history. All levels are welcome.


9 November 2019 - Finding the Plot

Do you have a story, or just a situation? Have you created character sketches and don’t know what to do with them? In every story, something must happen to someone, but getting started and keeping up the momentum is easier said than done! This workshop will investigate how to write a character’s physical and emotional journey, highlighting their dreams, triumphs, challenges and obstacles along the way



The programme runs from 10am to 2.30pm and includes a light lunch as well as morning coffee. Cost: £45 per person.
