Write Here! Write Now! Starts 24th September

I try to always design courses  I’d like to take myself, but with this is one I’m almost annoyed I can’t enrol. No homework, no preparation, just a space and a stack of prompts. Blurb below.
NEW at the Mary Ward Centre – Write Here! Write Now!
Starting 24th September Thursdays afternoons 14.00 – 16.00 
Write Here! Write Now!

Write Here! Write Now!

Whether writing from life or imagination, a first timer or an old hand, carve yourself a couple of hours writing time each week – no homework, no assignments, just supportive workshops specially designed to crack open the brand new writing in you.

Do you struggle to find the time to write, but love it when you do?
Do you enjoy being given writing challenges?

For two hours each week, you will be putting words on the page, drafting new writing, sharing snippets hot off the press, and taking those fresh words away to develop at your leisure.
This new course has been designed for writers of all levels. Excellent for those who are feeling blocked, or need to be prodded to put pen to paper, or who have always wanted to write but never found the time, or whose writing feels stuck in a rut.
Each week you will be given prompts to set you on your creative journey. Each week’s prompts will be different. You will look at a range of themes, and be given the opportunity to try out different writing styles. Where relevant, handouts will be provided, along with suggestions for follow-up reading. You will be encouraged and supported to develop your own writing style.

Bring pens, paper, enthusiasm, a generous spirit, and a willingness to play.

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!
