WORDPLAY A writing workshop in celebration of creativity and wonder
In a time of busy schedules, and places to be and people to see, it can be hard to find the time to simply play. WORDPLAY is a writing play group, a time in your week reserved for you — a time to connect with the wonder that lies at the heart of words and where they can take us.
For a period of six weeks we will meet for two hours of writing projects and prompts designed to welcome the unexpected, the spontaneous, and the serendipitous, culminating in an evening of readings on the last night.
Whether you are a poet, a fiction or non-fiction writer, an aspiring writer, a musician or a visual or performance artist, or simply someone who loves the joy of words, or even scrabble, boggle or crossword puzzles, this is an opportunity to entertain what it means to revel, gambol and cut loose with language.
