Workshops – Creative Writing


WRITE FOR GROWTH WORKSHOPS

Write for Growth Workshops happen on Saturday mornings from 10am-1pm, and are for anyone wanting to explore the potential of personal writing. Activities are designed to stimulate creativity and enhance well-being. Every workshop takes a different theme, making it accessible to the first-timer and fresh for the regular returner.

No previous experience is needed, just a desire to write and discover where words might take you. We enjoy discussing our responses to the activities, but you do not have to share what you have written unless you wish.

Upcoming Write for Growth events are listed below. Places are limited. Cost is £25 per workshop.

To book, call 07787 116603 or e-mail juliamcg@creativeconnectionscheshire.co.uk   Booking is confirmed by payment by at least one week before. No refund for cancellation at less than 7 days’ notice unless the place can be filled.


Write for Growth @ Gladstone’s Library, Church Lane, Hawarden, CH5 3DF

On: Saturday, 12th May, 10am-1pm

Theme: Up in the Air

Inhabiting the air opens up breathing space, new perspectives and the freedom to move out into fresh possibilities and directions. In our writing we will seek to defy the habits of gravity as we explore the element of the birds.


Write for Growth @ CastlePark Arts Centre, Frodsham WA6 6SE

On: Saturday, 2nd June 10am-1pm

Theme: Writing in Bloom

Opening out in our lives and in our writing is challenging, but as Anais Nin has noted, “the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”  In this workshop, we explore ways of flowering in and through words.


Write for Growth @ Gladstone’s Library, Church Lane, Hawarden, CH5 3DF

On: Saturday, 21st July 9.30am-12.30pm * Note different time

Theme: Writing in Colour

Colour can be vivid and powerful, or gentle and nuanced. It can create atmosphere, express or impact mood and trigger a wealth of associations and images. In this workshop, we will explore some of the places that colour can take us.

 


Write for Growth @ Gladstone’s Library, Church Lane, Hawarden, CH5 3DF

On: Saturday, 15th September 10am-1pm

Theme: Reflections

In this workshop we will explore the interplay of image and reflection, aware that the array of reflective surfaces we encounter in the world goes much further than mirrors and still waters.

    ‘I really enjoyed Julia’s knowledge and style of presentation. It was clear she knew what she was talking about. It was great to have someone lead the course who has
    done it for so long and knows exactly what she is doing.’
