We think we’ve have discovered a gem of a place to write. It’s very central – near Tottenham Court Road Station – and steeped in writing history. The room is very quiet and we’ll be writing around a huge 400 year old table. Just for this taster, we are focusing on place, and giving you a sample of what Josie and Penny can offer as teachers and mentors to your writing. Does place matter to your writing life? Writers often have a favourite place to write. We can be quite attached to our rituals. Nothing wrong with that but is the perfect place essential for a writing session, or is it just habit? Does it matter? It is a revelation to see that one can write on trains, in cafes, anywhere. It frees up the process sometimes. And what does it take to evoke place in writing? Do we have the same associations as our readers? Unlikely perhaps. Then how do we take them to where we want them to go? Our workshop is rooted in practical exercises, and there will also be a bit of block-busting should you need it, in the good company of other writers. This session costs just £10 as it is a taster for the 8 week course we are starting in January. See the courses tab for more detail about that. Hot drink and a biscuit provided and writerly networking of course. To book email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The first full-length course with Pearse & Black starts on Thursday, 9th January 2015 at a venue near Tottenham Court Road. The times of the course are 7pm to 9pm.
