Creative Writing half-day school at Nature in Art
23rd May, 10 – 1.00
How short can a story be and still be a story? Using guided exercises, and taking inspiration from our surroundings, we’ll be practicing and experimenting with creating stories. This is a great setting for writing, a beautiful historical building filled with a wide range of art works. We’ll have access to the grounds and galleries. Will you focus on the historical, the modern, surreal…?
There are still places available. If you’d like to join us, phone 01452 731422 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org
