About the Event

This writing workshop will help you advance your current writing projects. Discover how drawing can silence your writing blocks and stimulate writing. Bring a specific fiction or non-fiction writing project with you (e.g. academic assignments, reflective writing, personal statements for jobs). We will concentrate on generating actual writing rather than detailed editing. You’ll get a drawing-for-writing handout at the end.

If you are unsettled by the invitation to draw, this workshop is for you! It’s nothing to do with producing ‘good drawings’ or being ‘artistic’. You do not need any drawing ability to be in this workshop, just an openness and interest in what drawing might offer for your learning.

You will:

  • learn how to calm our ‘writing gremlins’ (we all have them!)
  • super-charge writing ideas with a curious and creative approach
  • practice ‘messy writing’ techniques

What do I need to have? A table or space to work in A small stack of printer paper Pens – biros of different colours

Your usual electronic devices (to type, take photos, record audio)
