Cloaked in Mystery

This week’s post is by Jude. We’ve just started our four week series in the American Museum, Bath.  Our course is full, but we recommend a visit to the museum for inspiration.

The photograph here shows a section of the Shaker Sisters’ room. Two cloaks hang on the wall. Write a mystery story about the people who own the cloaks. Set it in any historical period.

Rain starts play

ko-unThis week’s prompt by Jude.

I just saw renowned Korean poet Ko Un at a poetry and wine festival in Slovenia – a very seductive combination. A marvellous writer, Ko Un, now in his eighties, is also a zen master. This quote on the ‘poetry wall’ at the festival cafe, in Slovenian and English, might inspire you to write, whatever the weather. Set the timer for half an hour and see what happens.

Want a further stretch? We’ve a few places left on our Write Outside the Box session at Hall and Woodhouse Cafe next Tuesday, 13th September. Contact us asap, if you would like to come. Friendly group, fun exercises.
