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.

What’s behind the door?

keyhole This week’s prompt by Jude.

What’s behind the door? It hasn’t been opened for a while. There’s  a cobweb in the keyhole, the screws are rusty.  Who opens it? Answer the questions and solve the mystery in a short piece of no more than 500 words.

And if you want to unlock more ideas to give  your writing a boost, come to our two hour workshop at Hall and Woodhouse cafe on 14th June.  We have the key. Booking on this website. Four places left.
