Space to Write Wednesdays
Space to Write Wednesdays
We are delighted to announce our new Space To Write Wednesdays! Giving our participants space to write is central to all of our workshops and we are often told how valuable this is to our writers. So we are providing a dedicated fortnightly space to write.
In addition to guided free flow creative writing exercises, you will have the choice of developing your own work, at your own pace and taking inspiration from the resources Nichola brings along – which will vary with each workshop. For example; there may be images & objects; lists of topics for you to choose from, or even poetry.
There will be 4 separate workshops on offer and you can attend as many as you wish. Each evening workshop will be two hours long (7.30 – 9.30) at North Bank, Muswell Hill, N10. To celebrate Creative Writes Year of the Story 2018, we are offering these workshops at the special fee of £25 each.
Creative Writes will be collaborating with NLB (North London Brass) Highgate & Muswell Hill Band. The Band will be performing ‘Reflections In Brass’ at Highgate URC, Pond Square Chapel, Highgate Village on the evening of Wednesday 27th June 2018. The concert will commemorate the First World War. Creative Writes has been invited to work with them in the lead up to the concert. During our Space To Write Workshops in May & June 2018 – in addition to the other exercises, you will have the option to write to music which the band will be playing at the concert. As a group, we will then select the pieces that you may wish to read at the concert. The band will play the music to accompany your writing. There may also be a chance for us to send your writing to the band, in advance of the concert – so that they select music in response to your writing, to play at the concert.
We are very excited about this new collaboration!
What people say…
“I had a lovely evening at Space To Write. It was friendly and relaxing, totally non competitive and we could write at our own pace. No pressure or critique. We also had the unusual experience of watching a local brass band rehearsing in the Church next door which was an added bonus. I’ll definitely go again and I really recommend it to others as Nichola’s such a good and patient teacher.”
“Space to Write Wednesday was just what I needed to help me reinvigorate my writing practice. Nichola is amazing at creating encouraging and inspiring spaces, and her magic was in high gear last week. I’ll definitely be back for prompts, inspiration, and time to be with my ideas. Thank you, Nichola! KH”
