Event Details

Welcome to the Story Scavenger Club!

5 Mondays April 13th - May 18th 2015 7.30-9.30pm

1 week break Bank Holiday Monday 4th.

Many of you have been saying you'd like to learn to edit, get more input from me - and have the opportunity to workshop (get feedback on your writing from a larger group of writers). The Story Scavenger Club is a small, friendly workshopping group, that offers writers an opportunity to share work and get editing feedback (something there's usually not time for in a busy teaching setting).

These sessions are limited to only 6 writers - which means each of you get 20 minutes to share up to 1000 words of prose or up to 30 lines of poetry (1 or 2 poems) every week. Over the duration of the sessions this will be enough to evaluate either a chunk of a novel, one or two short stories, or a sequence of poems. Alternatively, you can bring experiments which you improve each week!

Please note that writers will NOT be asked to email work in advance of each session - but must bring paper copies of their writing (1 for each participant) which will then be reviewed on the day.

Workshopping is a wonderful way to discover what is working well with your writing and what needs improving. In giving feedback we improve our own critical thinking too, raising our awareness of skillfull and less skillfull writing - which we can then apply to our own writing process. Workshoppers need to be committed to participating fully with the group in order to get the most from this valuable experience. Workshopping with a small group over a regular period of time builds trust and a sense of community around writing too - so all in all these sessions are not to be missed.

The Story Scavenger Club will be convening in a central, Brighton location - exact venue to be announced.
