Kate Saffin and I (Alarum Productions) have planned a series of 3 online writing workshops you may be interested in. They’re on Thursdays 2-4pm, a month apart, using Zoom. If you’re unfamiliar with Zoom, we’re happy to help you set it up.
We are offering these workshops as Pay What You Can events. Here’s some info with links to further details and booking:
Life writing – Feb 25th – with Kate Saffin
The term ‘Life Writing’ is still quite new. In this workshop we’ll explore some of its different manifestations – autobiography, diaries, reminiscence… before getting down to some writing, using prompts to help us think about different moments in our lives. Click here for more.
Bringing the past to life – Mar 25th – with Heather Wastie
Using observation, memories, senses and imagination we will write an article suitable for a newsletter, newspaper, magazine or blog, describing a place or event connected to an element of history that interests us. We will also be creating a piece of poetry that connects to our chosen subject. Click here for more.
Monologue – April 22nd – with Kate Saffin
A monologue is a performance by a single actor – sometimes as part of a play (Shakespeare was very fond of them) or sometimes it is the play. We’ll explore the different approaches to monologue and then get down to writing one. Click here for more.
