WRITING PLACES: Speaking Objects Workshop with Rose Collis
October 30th 2015 11-1pm and 2-4pm
Speaking Objects: Writer-in-Residence Rose Collis leads a creative writing workshop in which participants will be encouraged to unleash their imagination on some of the deceptively simple household and personal items and ephemera on display throughout Coleridge Cottage. What part did objects such as a humble fireplace, a hat, a laudanum bottle or a skillet play in inspiring major works of the Romantic movement? What was their history, and what can they tell us? You decide!
