A 2 hour 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.
