The inspiration machine: a creative writing workshop

18 November, 2017, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

If I tell you to write a story about anything, you might feel quite stuck. But if I say that the story must include a goldfish, a gun and the Queen of England, then ideas suddenly start to sprout. This is the creative magic of constraint.

This playful workshop is an opportunity to find out how famous (and infamous) writers use creative constraints and games, and to try some out for yourself. The workshop will be led by childrens’ authors Anna Kemp (Dogs don’t do ballet, The Worst Princess), and Sylvia Bishop (Erica’s Elephant, The Bookshop Girl).

Suitable for aspiring writers, the curious, and the silly. Suitable for ages 10 to 110!
