I will write more soon, about various poetry projects in progress, but wanted to update on courses I am teaching locally, in East Anglia. Details here of a new one, at a great venue in Colchester, starting July 1st. Seven places remaining….
“STEALING STORIES: A short creative writing course, exploring narrative and poetry.”
The aim of this course will be to seek out the stories that come from within us, or stories we glean from others. We will explore ‘other voices’ and look at how to use these voices in your writing, paying attention to poetic language, character, narrative – pushing the creative boundaries of truth and lies. Designed to liberate the imagination using a wide variety of stimuli, and an opportunity to work in a small, attentive group, we will focus on how to entwine tales with poetry and turn them into unique pieces of creative work.
Location: The Tree Room, 12 Trinity Street, Colchester, CO1 1JN.
Time: Doors open 2pm, for refreshments. Prompt start: 2.30 – 4.30pm.
Dates: Saturday 1 July, 15 July, 29 July.
Number of places: 10
