POSTPONED – Welcoming All Writers Workshop

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Come to a day of invigorating writing workshops with Kaite O’Reilly and Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch.

Kaite O’Reilly

13:00 – 15:00

In a series of structured exercises participants will be encouraged to explore voice, dynamic, lyricism and tempo-rhythm – letting the words rise up from the page. Whether writing dialogue, spoken word, or poetry, you will explore the power of language working technically and from the imagination.

Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch

15:30 – 17:30

Translating sounds, smells and pictures into poems.

Translation isn’t only between different languages. In this hands-on workshop we’ll be translating smells, sounds and images into texts through playful and inventive techniques. Using an arts and crafts approach to uncover new writing, this workshop will offer insight to the process of designing a poem.

Evening Readings and Performances by Kaite and Samantha

18:30 – 19:30

Suggested donation £3

An evening of readings and short performances. Kaite and Samantha will present excerpts from their publications – acclaimed plays, dramatic monologues and prize-winning poetry in a celebration of the written and spoken word.
