About the Event
Join us for this unique day-long writing workshop on the theme of "obsession".
Whoever you are - whatever your level of curiosity - come along for teas/coffees, a late lunch, and lots of mindful writing exercises in between.
Meet some new, friendly people and do something authentic and fun with your new year.
As always, no experience of writing is necessary. No pressure to read or share your work in front of the group. Nobody will put you on the spot... for anything at all.
Together, we'll be having a look at some philosophy, mythology, fiction and poetry around the idea of the "obsession". What is it? What does it mean to be obsessed? How does it affect us? How can it be used to create interesting characters for fiction?
Once we've generated lots of ideas together, we'll give you prompts to write your own creative prose fiction along the way.
We meet at 11am, do a warm up writing exercise whilst having some teas/coffees, then straight into our first workshop. We'll break for brunch around 2pm, then do our second (smaller) writing workshop, till 4pm.
When we're done with our writing, we'll invite you to stay for a drink (this is included in the price, and can be a pint, a small glass of red or white, or a soft drink).
If you like, you can stick around to meet other people like yourself, who'd love to know more about writing, London, life, creativity, and the wider world.
One way or another, we hope to elevate your mood and help you dig deeper into things that really matter.
You'll even get a free Penguin modern classics book!
Text 07534 981 636 if you have any questions at all - we're more than happy to help. :)
