Starting to Write

Capturing ideas

Monday May 20th - Saturday May 25th 2019

Totleigh Barton

A fun, creative and supportive course for those who are just starting out on their journey as authors and poets, taught by two writers who are a little further along the road. We’ll use short, inspiring exercises aimed at generating and capturing ideas, and then find the building blocks to explore them on the page. Expect to open up new channels of creativity within yourself, and to leave refreshed and ready to tackle your next writing project.
