Event description

Description

These creative writing workshops are designed to help improve quality and confidence in your writing, whether fiction or non-fiction. We limit space so that you'll be part of a small group, in a friendly setting and have the chance to share your work for in-depth tutor and peer feedback. You'll explore a range of techniques and genres using exercises that excite your imagination and inspire you to pursue your aspirations for writing. If you hope to write for publication, journaling, as healing therapy or personal development these sessions provide the perfect platform to write in fresh new ways.

For this first session on Life Writing, we invite you to bring old and new photographs that will inspire you to write and share your life experiences. This is a wonderful confidence-building exercise that also reconnects you with your natural creativity and unique style of expression.

Workshop facilitator: Dr Michelle Asantewa.

Dr Asantewa formerly taught English Literature, Editing and Creative Writing at London Metropolitan University and currently facilitates writing workshops as an Independent Scholar. She set up Way Wive Wordz Publishing, Editing and Tuition Services, an education platform to accommodate a range of learning and creative aspirations. Her first novel Elijah and poetry collection The Awakening and Other Poems were self-published in 2014. Guyanese Komfa: The Ritual Art of Trance - her PhD thesis, Something Buried in the Yard and Mama Lou Tales: A Folkloric biography of a Guyanese Elder, were published in 2016. She is currently co-facilitator of The Amazing James Baldwin Course and African Women Resistance Leaders: Spiritual and Political course, both held at New Beacon Books/George Padmore Institute.
