Seaside Slam & Mini Lit Fest @ Beach Creative
Aug 27 @ 10:30 am – 5:30 pm

 

Neanderthal Bard and Connor Sansby – Word Stuff have come together with Beach Creative to bring you a Seaside Slam and Mini-LitFest.
FREE Workshops begin at 11am and are suitable for ages 13+

The Hero’s Journey – An introduction to plots

Often the hardest part of writing is making sure your story flows, instead of meandering through a series of disconnected scenes. This workshop is designed to demonstrate the role of plot structures as well as familiarising yourself with one of the most common frames for a story, as well as teaching you how it can be applied to your writing. A great workshop for writers starting their first steps as well as those who are looking to take their work to the next level.

Writing a Short Story – Fighting the Empty Page.

A crash course in short stories, this workshop helps battle writer’s block by shifting stories around a group. A wonderful opportunity to overcome the fear of the blank page, led by an experienced author taking you through plot structure and how to stay focused on the road to writing your first short story.

Land, Sea & Air Poetry

A highly interactive experience, writing a simple poem with the Poet-in-Residence of the Whitefriars Shopping Centre, designed to open up your mind to the possibilities of poetry and take your poetry up a gear, with an eye on performance and exploring imagery, rhythm and the power of silence

All followed by Seaside Slam from 3.30 onwards.
FREE
