This two-hour workshop aims to get your writing flowing with hands-on exercises and prompts. Suitable for beginners and experienced writers, Alex and Mary hope to inspire you with some fresh ideas and get your pen moving across the paper. We hope to put on more workshops in November, but are dipping our toe in the water, or our pen in the ink. Conscious Cafe serves organic, ethically sourced food and drink and writers will get a 10% discount. Our room is upstairs, windows will be open (so bring something warm) and numbers are very limited. If you want to come, please email me and include your own email address if you do via website, and i will send you bank transfer details. Please note, as is our usual policy we do not give refunds, but you are welcome to give your place to a friend. We hope that you have been vaccinated, or are regularly testing. Covid is not going away and our philosophy is to simply take care, but get back to real life and meet like-minded people.
Give yourself not more than 15 minutes to write a short story about a walker on this road.
Where are they going? What for? Who are they and what do they want? Set the timer…and get going
Who is about to sit on the stage? Try writing a physical description of each character which tells you something about them. Show, don’t tell.
Ps. One place left on November creative writing group.. come and join us and do more exercises like this one.
Please email and scroll down for more info.
This week’s prompt by Jude.
Write a piece about apples and pears —picking the fruit, eating it, cooking with it, buying it. It could be memoir, it could be fiction. Include fruity autumn smells and exact tastes. Involve two characters. One is reluctant.
