October

It’s October which means the Little Death Festival at Mudita House and now also Pop Up Penzance with Death on the High Street. This might sound rather gloomy! But actually both festivals offer a lot of creative, uplifting and inspirational events including two afternoon workshops from me:

I Am Death

Monday 29th October 2018 – 2pm to 4pm. Mudita House, 43 Morrab Rd, Penzance.

A 2 hour creative writing workshop with Linda Cleary focusing on 1st person voice, character development and story. During the workshop you will do various creative writing techniques and exercises culminating in several pieces of writing stemming from the theme. Price £15

Being Before Becoming

Wednesday 31st October 2018 – 5pm to 7pm. Pop Up shop, Market Jew St, Penzance.

A 2 hr creative writing workshop with Linda Cleary springboarding from the theme of answering this question: What was I before I became?

The inspiration for this subject was taken from listening to an interview with the writer Jenni Diski who died in April 2016. Knowing her cancer was terminal she found comfort in thinking how we cannot remember before our birth and so with death we shall go again into the unknown – and it will not be for the first time. ‘Not-being’ as she termed it.

During the workshop you will do various creative writing techniques and exercises culminating in a piece of writing stemming from the theme.

Suggested donation price £15. Money paid to Pop Up Penzance.

November

We can go into dreams..

Dreams & Writing Course

Saturday 3rd November 2018 – 10.30am to 1pm (and each Saturday at that time until and including 24th November). (A Thursday evening slot may be available as an alternative – please let me know asap so I can change the room booking). Hypatia House, Chapel St, Penzance.

This is an intensive and highly successful four 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
