Are your words too tame? Do your ideas need liberating? Let them out of the cage, and allow them to prowl the page!
This rule-breaking writing workshop is designed to encourage you to give voice to the feral fringes of your creativity.
You’ll be supported in a friendly, safe environment to venture beyond literary comfort zones and tap into words that can electrify, shock, motivate and move. All you need is a pen and paper and a willingness to be wild! We may be out in the garden in the evenings, so bring outdoor clothing and be prepared!
