Welcome to the October edition of WRITE! a monthly creative writing workshop with author Karl Drinkwater.
WRITE! is all about letting your imagination guide your hand. We’ll chat about a writing-related topic, then provide prompts and a theme. You will then have an 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. By attending WRITE you’ll have a brand new piece of writing that you have created.
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. 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 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 drinks and nibbles from 6.30pm – 7pm
