Write! @ The Stove Cafe
Welcome to the June edition of WRITE! a monthly creative writing workshop with author Karl Drinkwater.
WRITE! is all about letting your imagination guide your hand. In each session we’ll chat about a writing-related topic, then provide prompts and a theme, and the opportunity to write based on the inspiration. It might be a character sketch, or a piece of description or dialogue. The key thing is that it will be your words, and they’d never have been born if you’d stayed at home that night.
The short piece you write could be practice or a creative outlet. However, it could become the seed of a short story, or part of a longer work. Hopefully we’ll end each friendly and informal session with the opportunity for some people to read out what they wrote, as a celebration of the new words.
Open to: everyone! It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never written anything before, or if you’re an established author looking for a brief shot of espresso creativity. It’s not a course, so you can attend any or all sessions, as you wish.
This months theme…
This session will be on objects and description. If you are attending please bring a few small items, especially anything with interesting textures or shapes. A milk jug, swatch of textured fabric, snow globe, locket, anything that interests you! We will then examine our collection of items and get inspired.
So come along. We’ll provide the inspiration and a supportive group of new friends. All you need to do is bring your pen, engage your heid, and write!
( Of course it’s fine to bring a laptop or gadget instead of pen and paper: words are words, whatever the medium!)
The Stove Cafe will be serving drinks and nibbles from 6.30pm – 7pm
