‘Ways of Seeing’: free writing workshop for marginalised writers
New Writing North are pleased to once again be working in partnership with award-winning Brighton-based charity Creative Future to offer a free workshop to writers who feel they have lacked professional development or showcasing opportunities due to mental health, disability, ethnicity, sexual identity and / or social circumstance. The workshop is suitable for new, emerging and established writers.
Workshop: ‘Ways of Seeing’
We use stories and poems to explain our world to ourselves and each other, but all of us see the world in slightly different ways. These personal perceptions are part of what makes our authorial voices unique. The words we use may be shared, but they are also our own. Using group discussion, personal reflection and writing exercises this workshop will help writers at any stage of their career rediscover their own individual authorial voice.
The workshop will be led by the award-winning writer Pat Winslow. Pat has extensive experience facilitating workshops and is a widely published poet and short-story writer.
Newcastle City Library (Bewick Hall),

Wednesday 18 May 2016, 1pm to 4pm
