The Warehouse, Hampton Wick
Why not join us on a wintry Saturday morning and unleash your imagination in our latest creative writing session?
In this workshop, creative writing teacher Janette Simpson will be looking at the importance of place in story writing. According to Swedish novelist Linn Ullman, “Before you can write a good plot, you need to write a good place.” You need look no further than Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ or Delia Owens’ ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ to find excellent examples of this.
No previous writing experience is needed for this workshop, just a willingness to play with words, a desire to write and an intention to create a sense of place.
Lots of tea, coffee and homemade cake are included.
Janette Simpson is an experienced and popular writing teacher, who has led many creative writing workshops with both adults and children. Participant numbers are kept deliberately low (maximum 8) to ensure that everyone has plenty of opportunities to contribute and to ask questions.
In the event that the class is unable to go ahead due to the ongoing covid-19 virus situation, we will of course offer all participants the option of an alternative date or refund.
“Janette was really enthusiastic and supportive.”
“The class was fun and I enjoyed the various different tasks.”
