Drawn to the Page
Creative writing workshop for all abilities looking at A Certain Kind of Light.
No previous knowledge of either art or writing is necessary to enjoy these sessions, simply bring a notebook and pen. There’ll be lots of inspiration as you learn about the art on display and develop your own creative responses to what you see, working in prose, poetry or autobiography. We’ll use a combination of group discussions, writing exercises, individual writing time and sharing in a group to get the very most from the gallery experience.
All writers who attend are offered the opportunity to publish their writing on the Drawn to the Page blog which will be updated monthly. One of our recent participants has also just published a story she started at the gallery in the high profile, Litro Magazine. You can listen to what happens in a Drawn To The Page session on the BBC Radio 4 Open Book programme here.
The sessions will be facilitated by writer and artist, Wendy Ann Greenhalgh. Wendy Ann is part of the New Writing South Creative Learning Team and an experienced writing tutor, as well as an arts educator who’s worked in galleries all over the South East.
