Event description

Description

This is a twelve week creative writing course.

To begin, you will learn how to switch off your daily stress and free-write, using my unique ‘brain - balance’ technique.Next, with the finest resources I could gather, you will immerse yourselves in the faces, legends, hurts and healing ways of the old Native American Grandmothers.

With quick fire exercises,you will learn how to create a Grandmother character, how to paint her with words, find and develop her voice. There will be interactive games, role play, old photographs and stories of the First Peoples to fire your imagination.We give Granny magic. We tell our tales of dark times, through Granny. We write our traumas and lived experiences. We recreate the old healing ways of our lands and peoples in order to release into words the ways we all survived.

You then transplant your Grandmother in a location of your choice, listening for the ways in which she relates to environment. Grandmother’s story will emerge as you travel with her. You may bring your own tales for transformation into legendary healing stories of our time. There will be Goddesses and Druids and She-Wolves to add spice to Granny's life.

The cost for this entire course is £250, with taught classes and online support. Drop in sessions are £35 each. Early booking is £200 until 13th May.

The location is the Royal Findhorn Yacht Club veranda, overlooking the sea of Findhorn Bay on the Moray Coast,Scotland. Accomodation may be available.

Start date Wednesday 15th May 2019 at 11 am. Ends 14.00 until 31st July 2019

My name is Orla Broderick. I am an award winning author in my own right and a talented and dedicated teacher.

You do not need any experience in creative writing. Just bring paper and pens and a willingness to be transported to the furthest recesses of your heart and soul in order to decorate page after page with glorious story.
