Write ClubCreative Writing Group
This creative writing group concentrates on writing exercises inspired by visual art and conversations with Spike Island studio holders. These encounters are designed to provide ideas for new writing or new ways of presenting work. As always, supportive peer critique is central to the group’s activity.
The April, May and June sessions focus on structuring longer pieces of writing and the challenges of working on ongoing projects. The aim is to complete one piece of work by the end of the three meetings. The June meeting is led by guest host Holly Corfield-Carr.
Creative writers of all disciplines are welcome, as are artists who use text in their work.
