Yesterday's workshop 'Death of the Idea, Death of Self' was a real success full of dynamic interaction, dedicated learning, great writing and inspiration.
I love designing new workshops and courses and, even better, implementing them to such positive effect.
For many of you who may be wondering what we actually explored in the workshop - take a look at the poster within the photos for the brief but added to that after exploring situations where death of any kind/limitation/block can arise the writers began writing character study, key scene summary, pivotal points in the trajectory, key locations and sample dialogue. They produced a lot of valuable work!
Due to the success of this workshop I will be offering it again elsewhere :)

THEN WE HAVE:
Dreams & Writing Course
Wednesdays 6.30pm to 9pm - 6th to 27th November
This intensive 4 session Creative Writing course looks 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.
Each week we will look at a different subject whilst continuing to learn various techniques and
methods through exercises and grammar play.
Week 1: Focus is on The Dreamtime and You
Week 2: Focus is on Dream Characters
Week 3: Focus is on Living With A Dream
Week 4: Focus is on a Love Letter to the Landscape
Watch this short intro video
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.
