Not long now: Writing the City at Mary Ward – new series begins Tuesday, 25th Feb 2014

Okay, granted, it’s not ideal weather for the London flaneur, but there’s so much to see in Spring, and quite a lot of it is, thankfully, indoors, in the warmth of galleries and museums, and oh, you’ll have to wait and see! There are some real treats in store, starting Tuesday 25th Feb.


As usual we’ll be meeting in the first week at 11.30am at the Mary Ward Centre in Queen Square, and we’ll be keeping it local, visiting ¬†treasures nearby for inspiration. After that, we will be out and about farther afield, for a further five fabulous sessions.

So – do sign up (and if you have already, do tell a friend! There are still a few spaces up for grabs) sort out your hardy walking wear, maybe bring a brolly, definitely bring your writing gear, and see you there!

I can’t wait.

About claire collison

Writer, photographer, creative facilitator, and breast cancer survivor, I am currently Artist in Residence at the Women's Art Library (WAL) My first novel was a finalist in the Dundee Book Prize, and my short stories and poetry have appeared in print and online. In 2015 I was awarded second place in the inaugural Resurgence Prize, the world's first eco poetry competition, judged by Sir Andrew Motion, Alice Oswald, and Jo Shapcott. This blog began as a space for words generated on my walking/writing workshops at the Mary Ward centre in Bloomsbury - Writing the City (WTC). WTC has since grown to include many other venues, including the Museum of Broken Relationships, the Barbican, the River Rom, Southwark Woods, Aylesbury Estate, and most recently, as part of Walking Women festival, An Intimate Tour of Breasts. I have worked with Kettle's Yard, Cambridge, as the recipient of the first Max Reinhardt Literacy Award, designing teaching resources; and for The Photographers' Gallery, helping school children develop visual literacy as part of 'Seeing More Things'. If you would like me to design a workshop or walk for you, please be in touch!
