Yesterday I saw a murmuration of starlings amongst a joyful tree and this morning the air is sharper. The seasons take us.. and so into November we go and here are the upcoming events!
Dreams & Writing Course
starting Saturday 11th November 10.30am to 1pm.
Every Saturday for 4 weeks (ends 2nd Dec).
This is an intensive 4 session Creative Writing course looking at how to use the alchemy of our own dream tapestry to weave into our creative writing. We can use our dreams to work on theme, characters and archetypes, dramatic structure and plot. We also look at how Jung dealt with dreams and drama and Dreamtime totems and the dreaming of landscape.
‘And though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the Truth of who we are.’ Rumi

The course will be at Hypatia House, Regent Basement, Chapel St, Penzance.
Price includes 10 hr group tuition with writing tasks, non mandatory takeaway assignments and individual review/edit of one piece that you can choose to submit.
