Do you find it hard to find the words to express how you feel about what’s happening to the planet right now? You’re not alone.
Join us for an inspiring afternoon of finding the words in this creative writing workshop with various ways of expressing yourself including poetry, prose, speech writing, slogans, placards and paint. We’ll be joined by experienced writers Declan Wiseman and Helen Redfern from Green Heart Collective and Rachel Cabral, published author with an MA in Creative Writing and Parliamentary Green Party Candidate for Gateshead.
The workshop will run for three hours from 3pm to 6pm, with the opportunity to choose two different sessions on the day to participate in. Whether you’re confident in creative writing or coming to it for the first time, these sessions will be facilitated to allow you the space to express your thoughts and feelings in writing in your own unique style.
The workshop will be followed by a relaxed presentation of the work produced for friends and family at 6:30pm, with an opportunity to read your finished piece, if you’d like to.
This presentation will include an excerpt from Rachel Cabral’s novel in progress ‘Green Girl’ and an exciting solo performed by Yamit Salazar of Eliot Smith Dance, inspired by Eliot Smith’s new dance work LIFE.
Workshop costs £5 to register and the presentation will be Pay As You Feel.
