GROUNDWERK 3.5 // Creative Writing
SAT 29 SEPTEMBER 2:30-4pm
FREE & OPEN TO ALL AT TURF, 46-47 TRINITY COURT, WHITGIFT CENTRE, CR0 1UQ
In this session, get to grips with the exhilarating and sometimes terrifying experience that is ‘creative writing’. We’ll try exercises to start to develop a voice, exploring how to enhance your creative practice through writing, break down emotional blocks, get over yourself and just write! The session is suitable for beginners and more advanced writers, but especially for those who want to take the next step in their writing process or incorporate writing into their practice. For those who are interested, we can also discuss routes to publishing.
Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.
This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited.
