Write for Growth: Choice

October 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Gladstone's Library
Hawarden CH5 3DF

This workshop picks up on 2021’s National Poetry Day theme of Choice.

Exercising choice is an essential element of our humanity and our creativity. How and why do we make our choices? What is too much choice, or too little, in the dynamic between freedom and constraint? And as we come to write, how do we select the words we put on the page?

As Write for Growth comes back home to Gladstone’s Library, we will explore different aspects of the choices we make in our lives and in our writing.

  • About Julia


    From writing stories for my younger brother, to penning poems for the School Magazine and filling a growing pile of personal journals, the written word has always been part of my life’s journey.

    I started out as an English Teacher and subsequently retrained as a Counsellor. I have counselled in a GP Surgery and worked with various Employee Assistance Schemes and Charitable Trusts alongside seeing private clients.

    Although I have done some freelance journalism and written four non-fiction books, creative writing has become my main focus in recent years.

    My poems have appeared online on sites including Amaryllis, Silver Birch Press, Clear Poetry, Spilling Cocoa Over Martin Amis, Riggwelter and Ink,Sweat and Tears. I have been published in Curlew and Bucks Mill Magazine, and anthologised in Our Hearts Still Sing. My first poetry collection, Chester City Walls, came out in 2015.
