It’s spring! So do you want to get a spring in your writing life? Well, here are some dates for you…
Put some movement in your writing – Saturday 22nd April, Tunbridge Wells
There are still a few places left for the yoga and journal writing workshop this Saturday at the Freestyle Yoga Project in the High Street, Tunbridge Wells. You can come and join Anna’s wonderful Mellow Yellow class at 1pm and then write with us from 2.15-4.15, or just come for the writing part at 2.15. More details are here, but it’s important to note that this workshop is ideal EVEN if you’ve never done either yoga or writing (or both) before – it’s about opening up your creativity, trying something new and playing both on the page and the mat!
Share a poem – Saturday 29th April and Sunday 30th April, Canterbury
I’m lucky enough to work with the amazing Poetry Exchange who have found a completely new way of introducing and talking about poetry. Book a FREE 45 minute spot with us (I’m with John Prebble on the Saturday, and Victoria Field will be there on the Sunday) at the Wise Words Festival in Canterbury and bring a poem that has been a friend to you to talk about.I promise it’ll be an enriching experience, and you get a special recording of your poem afterwards as a gift.
HURRY THOUGH because these spots do get booked up – click here for the booking info. If you’re not quite in time to catch your spot, you can listen to the podcast here.
Retreat from the world and nourish your love of words, 10-5pm, Friday 5th May, Canterbury
Last year we were sold out for this workshop in the yurt, and this year places have been going fast. COME AND JOIN Fiona Bennett and I as we encourage you to play with words, write in completely new ways, get tons of new ideas, and just generally spoil your writing self.
The details are here, and all you need to bring is a pen and journal. A CPD certificate is available for this workshop.
Some comments from last year’s participants..
I’ve discovered a new voice that I didn’t even know I could write in. Inspirational.
I’m coming away with so much potential new work.
I feel like it’s been much longer than a day, I’ve travelled a long way inside myself and with words.
