Thursday 2nd August to Friday 3rd August

Whether we recognise it or not we all have a way with words. The way we arrange them on a page signifies our own 'voice', unique and valid. This two-day course will offer the space and stimulation to be creative with words in a relaxed and supportive setting. We will be open to writing in different genres - prose, poetry, autobiography and others - as a means of freeing us up, looking at things in a different way and enlivening our imaginations. There will be opportunity for experimentation within the group as well as quiet moments for writing on our own. The hope is that by the end of the course students will feel confident and energised, with fresh ideas, small drafts for future development, even some completed pieces.
A way with words ANN ALLEN started work in London in publishing, editing and writing for theatre and other publications. Since her move to the Cotswolds she has concentrated on writing poetry and her collection Michelangelo Can Paint an Angel was published by Paekakariki Press in 2013. Ann values the restorative nature of writing. As the (Oxford-based) poet Elizabeth Jennings found, 'words touch me back to quiet.'
