Writing Down The Dingle

Crows Nest Dingle Gleanings WorkshopI’ve just finished putting together the details for a new workshop, in partnership with Gleanings Centre, a venue situated on Yvonne and John’s 14 acre award-winning farm tucked between the Shrewsbury and the Welsh border.   The workshop is on Saturday 18th July, from 10.30 to 3.30.

I’m really excited about it!

The workshop will explore both the landscape around Gleanings, and ways to write about place.  How do we experience a place?  How can we respond to it in writing?

We’ll walk down the Dingle and into woods, below a skyline made craggy with the Stiperstones.   I’ll create outdoor writing exercises and prompts, provide feedback, and advice on re-drafting. We’ll read from other poets and writers to enrich our experience.

The emphasis during Writing Down The Dingle will be on discovery, surprise and exploration – come and write your way into where you are.

The cost of the workshop is £35 (includes coffee, tea, homemade cake, also homemade
soup and roll for lunch).   Book by emailing jean@wordsparks.co.uk
