Stories – our lives are made up of them, each one of us has our own unique story. We’ve inherited stories and we pass them on, we create new ones from the material of our lives and from our imaginations. This four-week writing workshop will explore ways of sharing our experiences, thoughts, and imaginings, allowing us to open up each participant’s creativity, whether you are new to writing or more experienced. We will explore instant writing exercises, monologues, dialogue, shaping narratives so that we can communicate our stories to others in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
