This is a course for anyone with an interest in writing for children and young people. We’ll look at writing for picture books, children’s poetry, and stories for older readers. We’ll do writing exercises, look at published books, and share and supportively discuss our own work. Suitable for both beginners and experienced writers.
Local writer Rachel Shorer thinks there’s something a bit magical about poetry. In this one day course she explores how poetry reaches places other words can’t. You’ll write different kinds of poems, read poetry and share your work with others. As a group of writers you’ll support and encourage each other. Suitable for those who haven’t read or written a poem since they were in school, those who already love reading and writing poetry, and everyone in between.
Come along and make unique Christmas wreaths to impress your friends and give away as gifts. You will learn how to make three different styles of wreath using textiles, haberdashery, beads and natural materials. Wreath frames will be supplied at cost price.
