Anyone remember this? Such fun, such irony, such piss-taking and *such* nasty emails!
I’m learning to eat my sarcastic words gracefully, with dignity, and in eight bite-sized portions because I’m going to be teaching a creative writing course.
If you live in Preston or are willing to travel in once a fortnight and you are interested in… wait, where’s the leaflet?
Would you like to get the creative juices going, practice your writing,
and perform your work in front of an audience? Local author Jenn
Ashworth is going to be running an 8-session creative writing group
suitable for committed beginners and those already writing.
Over the course of eight fortnightly sessions, Jenn will introduce you
to the basics of description, character and conflict through a series of
themed workshops and one on one tutorials. Suitable for poets and prose
writers, the course will meet you where you are and help you improve at
your own pace in a supportive and honest environment. As the course
progresses, you’ll gain experience, guidance and feedback through the
entire process of composition up to editing and performing your work.
With your classmates you’ll help to create an anthology, plan an event
and participate in an end of course celebration and reading at the
Continental – Preston’s newest centre for culture and the arts.
The sessions run every other Monday from November 3rd to February 16th
(with a Christmas break), 7.30pm – 9.30pm. The 8 sessions cost £25. The
group will be no bigger than 15 friendly people. For more information or
to sign up, email me at ruth (at) newcontinental.net. Places are going
quickly, so let me know as soon as possible if you’re interested.
