Lettrétage

Have you been wondering about how to put your idea for a story on to the page? Or do you want to breathe new life into those short stories that have been languishing at the bottom of a drawer? Many of us have a creative writing project or idea on the go – but need the tools to bring them over the finish line.

So let’s meet in June for a weekend workshop!

This two-day workshop invites you to create new ideas across a range of writing forms through visual, auditory, and written prompts, asking you to explore character, tone, point of view, story arrangement, settings, and conflict.

Through pre-workshop reading, lively in-group discussion, and tailored creative writing exercises, this course aims to be productive; a creative experience to catalyze both beginner and seasoned writers in new imaginative directions. Writers will explore and discuss craft and creative ideas during the first day, with more in-depth writing occurring on day two. Writing will take place in short bursts throughout and, if the weather is sunny, we’ll head to the park for a writing exercise too. Everyone will leave with story ideas and inspiration for many more.

Pre-workshop writing, including passages and several prompts, will be emailed one week prior, whereas writing will be conceived of on the weekend.

This course is open to all levels of writers, across all formats, and is particularly suited to new writers, anyone looking to generate new ideas, and those unsure or shy about calling themselves ‘writer’ just yet. Writers of colour, working class, LGBTQ+, disability, and anyone who believes their stories aren’t being heard are joyfully invited.
