Writing for Self Discovery workshops
Small group workshops facilitated by Alison Clayburn (M.A. Creative Writing for Personal Development) at Canada Water Library (next to Canada Water bus/train/tube station) Rotherhithe London SE16.
Saturdays 1.30pm - 4.30pm
These workshops use creative writing to explore both personal and collective responses to a common theme, and then produce creative nonfiction, poetry or story.
Some person made structures are engineered to connect us. Why are they there? What are they for? How do they impact on our lives and how would it feel to be one? We will look at their significance in a variety of ways, using reflective writing and idea sharing. We will then write a unique piece of personal poetry or prose – or both!
