Breathing Lightly writing workshop

On March 1st, I will be running a writing workshop with Rebecca Audra Smith focusing on ‘The Body’. At the moment I am working too much to resurrect CAKE.writers at Nexus Art Café (though if others still want to go, you’re more than welcome to use the space!), but we plan to do workshops every couple of months throughout 2014.


From the facebook event page:

This full day of workshops is aimed at prose and poetry writers, and will focus on exploring themes surrounding The Body. You will take part in a range of different writing exercises, including introspective/meditative work and group tasks! The workshops will be led by writers Sarah Grace Logan and Rebecca Audra Smith.

Please reserve a ticket via eventbrite, and then let us know if you wish to pay via paypal, or on the door (£15/ concession £12)

Arrivals, icebreakers and introductions

10:30 – 12:45 Out of Body
A workshop exploring out of body experiences, using close reading and freewriting to encourage you to reach in new directions.

12:45 – 1:30 Lunch/Writing Time
We will provide free tea, coffee and homemade cake for the breaks, but please bring along something to nibble on for lunch.

1:30 – 3:30 Sense and Sensation
In this workshop we will encourage you to consider sensation and touch in your writing, and explore the idea of words as physical beings.

3:30 – 4:30 Feedback/Writing Time
A chance to share something that you’ve written in the workshops and get feedback from the group. We will also leave you with a workbook of writing exercises to take away.

The workshop costs £15 for the whole day, and includes drinks and amazing homemade cake. There is a concessionary rate of £12 for students, unwaged and workshop leaders. The cost is primarily to cover room hire, refreshments and photocopying.
