Welcome to our fifth WRITE! a monthly creative writing workshop with author Karl Drinkwater.
WRITE! is all about letting your imagination guide your hand. In each session we’ll chat about a writing-related topic, then provide prompts and a theme, and the opportunity to write based on the inspiration. It might be a character sketch, or a piece of description or dialogue. The key thing is that it will be your words, and they’d never have been born if you’d stayed at home that night.
The short piece you write could be practice or a creative outlet. However, it could become the seed of a short story, or part of a longer work. Maybe you’ll polish it to perform at a Brave New Words event! Hopefully we’ll end each friendly and informal session with the opportunity for some people to read out what they wrote, as a celebration of the new words.
Open to: everyone! It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never written anything before, or if you’re an established author looking for a brief shot of espresso creativity. It’s not a course, so you can attend any or all sessions, as you wish.
So come along. We’ll provide the inspiration, including a free drink and piece of cake and a supportive group of new friends. All you need to do is bring your pen*, engage your heid, and write!
(* Of course it’s fine to bring a laptop or gadget instead of pen and paper: words are words, whatever the medium!)
The Stove Cafe will be serving complimentary drinks and nibbles from 6.30pm – 7pm
