Welcoming All Writers Workshop

November 23 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

3 spaces left for this workshop*

Spend a stimulating afternoon with award winning writers relishing words and honing craft in two distinct writing workshops, then finish off the evening with celebratory readings and a book launch. Chris Kinsey and Kaite O’Reilly will each lead a two-hour workshop, welcoming all writers from all forms – poetry, prose, spoken word, live performance – beginners and experienced.

Chris Kinsey – Blood from Stone

1pm – 3pm
Embodying the elemental & environmental. Writing the real using the senses and heightening impressions through metaphor and sound choices. Dig deep and mine the elemental world to write with passion and clarity. Engage with the natural world through a variety of guided prompts and shared experiences.

Kaite O’Reilly – Planting the Seeds

3.30pm – 5.30pm
Immersive writing from the senses, memory, and imagination. Writing is a process of discovery and exploration. In a series of structured exercises participants will be encouraged to investigate texture, dynamic, and the visceral when writing for the living voice, and along the way, plant the seeds for possible future work.

£30 (entry to evening performance included in the workshop fee)
