CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS Spring 2019  

CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS Spring 2019   

BOOK NOW!  BOOK NOW!  BOOK NOW!

DATES AND TIMES

Sundays 10 February and 24 March 2019: 1.30 – 5.30 pm (Doors open 1.15)

 

Each workshop is self-contained and involves different activities around the chosen theme so you can come to one or the other or both, according to your availability.

 

COST: £25 (£20 concession i.e. those on a low income) per workshop

            Pay at the start of the day (cash or cheque to Ms C Vial)

            Cost covers all materials and refreshments at break-times.      

LOCATION:

Friends Meeting House, 61 Church Hill, Winchmore Hill, N 21 ILE

(NB We meet in the small meeting room at the side of the main building; follow the path round - on your right as you look at the building - to find us.)

Map and travel & parking information available – just ask!

 

If you want to have lunch before we start, you can bring sandwiches to eat in the grounds (weather permitting) or go out to eat; there are several places near -by.

 

Our spring theme is: Who’s telling the story and why should you believe a word they say?  How to use multiple and/or unreliable narrators in your writing.

 

Come and find out more about narrative voice – the” who” and the” how” of every piece of writing. What viewpoint is the story told from? What qualities does the writing voice have and need? In particular we’ll look at different kinds of unreliable narrators – where the reader can’t trust the story they’re being told – and stories told by several or even multiple narrators, offering different (often conflicting) versions of what is happening or has happened in the past.

 

Using examples ranging from classic writers such as Wilkie Collins and the poet Robert Browning to recent best-selling novels such as” Small Island”(Andrea Levy) and” Gone Girl”(Gillian Flynn), you’ll learn more about these techniques and

develop ideas for using them in pieces of writing of your own.

 

 

Our activities will be relevant for a variety of writing including fiction, auto- biography, factual writing including blogging, writing for children and poetry & for all levels of experience – including none! Beginners are welcome as well as those with some experience.

 

Feel free to bring along a short piece of writing by yourself (any theme) you would like feedback on from the group and/or any piece of writing (by yourself or another writer) that you feel relates to the workshop topic.
