"Southside House is not a work of art but something more precious - a house created and adorned by those who inhabit it."  Simon Jenkins (England's 1000 Best Houses).

Spring Creative Writing Cycle*

 

Saturday 4th May 10am :   How to shape your plot (focus: plot)

Following the success of our Wimbledon Bookfest writing workshop, we are delighted to invite you to our full creative writing cycle for this spring. In a series of two monthly workshops, writer-in-residence Juan Tafur will share basic techniques to stir our creativity and bring out the stories we all carry with us. Each workshop will focus on an aspect of fiction writing and provide simple and engaging exercises to bring them to life. In the unique setting of Southside House, home to so many tales and memories, they will open a door to the stories that matter most: the ones told from the heart, that speak about ourselves.

 

 

* Though each workshop will have a focus, they all touch simultaneously on many aspects of writing since we will be doing quite a lot of it! They are also self-contained modules, so you can book those that suit you or interest you most.

Can’t make a date you don’t want to miss? Please let us know. Juan is open to duplicating some sessions if a number of people request it.

 

 

 

£30 per session, including coffee and tea
