About Creative Writing - Poetry and Prose 5 week course

This ticket is for a 5 week course starting 21st February 2018

Poetry and Prose 21st  Feb – 21st March    7pm-9pm

ABOUT THE COURSE

Please join us for a combined poetry and prose creative writing workshop I believe that writing cannot be taught --  but it can be learnt, and this is where I start from. The classes are for anyone who cultivates a, “beginners mind” – new writers, experienced writers, all are welcome. We will use exercises and prompts and produce work during each session.  Workshops will take place in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, and we will learn how to supportively critique each other’s work. You will read your work at a Flowetry event run through Wynwood Art/Locus of Walthamstow at a date TBC.

I have run successful Creative Writing Workshops at Kensington and Chelsea College and have had my poems published in a number of small press journals and zines, including The Los Angeles Review, Concrete, Remark and the recent Wynwood Art fanzines.

POETRY: these workshops will have the group look at the work of a poet and discuss it, we will then carry out exercises to start writing and then finish with more focused writing where you can mine the work you have done to ‘find’ your poem. We will discuss meter, and rhyme but the focus will be on free verse and on having you write, write, write!

PROSE: we will look at structure for short stories but these can be expanded and applied to other longer forms of narrative, including novels, plays and screenplays.

We will carry out exercises and workshop each other’s writing throughout the course.
