Developing an Original Character: a Creative Writing Workshop with Ania Bas
Join us on Wednesday, 31st May from 7 - 8.30pm for Developing an Original Character, a creative writing workshop with Ania Bas, author of Odd Hours.
About the workshop:
Text messages, shopping lists, emails, cover letters and online product reviews all offer rich starting points for an original fictional character. Join us for a workshop led by Ania Bas, an artist and writer who uses in her work forms of writing that are part of everyday life. This workshop will offer guided exercises to encourage you to experiment and unlock your imagination – ideal if you want to write but need help getting started. It is suitable for beginners and for writers with more experience.
Where will the workshop take place?
We'll be meeting at Night Owl Books, 1 Bridge Street, East Linton, EH40 3AG, at 7pm.
