Ever wished you could take your ideas and experiences and shape them into words for sharing with others?

Join award-winning author and experienced performer, Merryn Glover, in this workshop series that builds confidence and ideas for just that! In a relaxed, fun and highly supportive environment, we will explore stories, poetry and other forms, share our work together and find the best ways to get your best words into the world.

We will look at:

– how to gather good ideas

– how to decide if it’s a story or a poem or something in between

– what makes a great story, or a great poem, or a great in-betweeny-thing

– how to write it and RE-write it for improvement

– structure, timing, language, tone and other word craft skills

- ways to share your words – in publication and performance

– whether to memorise, improvise or read

– how to practice

– how to gain confidence to perform

– how to develop your body, breath and voice

– how to deal with nerves, memory lapses and scowling audiences

– how to love it!

Bring paper, pen and a playful spirit.

Open to anyone aged 16+
