|Rochdale Town Hall,|
a stones throw from Touchstones
The session shows how any writer or anyone who aspires to be a writer for whatever reason can benefit from some tips and techniques from professional writers.
The TCWG is a very enthusiastic group and with 19 people attending we were assured of plenty of questions, productive discussions and of course a fair amount of creative writing. After introducing the session with a short section of my poem, "I'm a bloody poet now", I explained that basis of the session, some of the learning outcomes and set the mood by reading another of my poems, "Blank", which talks about the problem faced by a writer trying to get past the blank page.
The whole group contributed to discussions, took part in the writing exercises and kept me on my toes with a constant stream of intelligent questions - a facilitator really can't ask for more than that.
I am now really looking forward to reading some of the completed work from the session and also to my next session for TCWG, in August, when I will be delivering another of this year's new workshops "Sketching with Words".
"Writing to Order "is just one of a number of workshops that I offer to writing groups, schools and community groups; SEE MY BLOG POST HERE for details of my other workshops.
