The Time is Write - Monday 8th July
Session Topic: Becoming a Writer & Finding Your Story
To reserve a place at the table, follow the secure booking link. A warm welcome is waiting for you and the stories waiting to be told. Tea & biscuits & good company included.
All the writing exercises are suitable for beginners and experienced writers. As Natalie Goldberg, author of "Writing Down the Bones" says;
“...that beginner's mind is what we must come back to every time we sit down and write...
Each time is a new journey with no maps."
In place of maps there will be a writer’s toolbox of exercises, plot devices, guidance, encouragement and feedback to unlock your creativity.
What to expect
Alongside the topic at each session, I will guide you to respond to multi-sensory prompts that I bring along on the day. These might be words, flowers, photographs, poems, postcards, prose, colours, smells, sounds, food, maps or other tactile objects.
The discovery or re-birth of the creative writer within you. Reflective writing that is just for you and/or well-crafted stories that you might decide to share with the world.
Starting with where you are, it is always possible to develop new skills and discover the creative writer that lies within.
