Wild-Writing - Kevan Manwaring Wed 26 Apr - Wed 28 Jun

  • Arts

Are your words too tame? Do your ideas need liberating? Let them out of the cage, and allow them to prowl the page!

This rule-breaking writing workshop is designed to encourage you to give voice to the feral fringes of your creativity.

You’ll be supported in a friendly, safe environment to venture beyond literary comfort zones and tap into words that can electrify, shock, motivate and move. All you need is a pen and paper and a willingness to be wild! We may be out in the garden in the evenings, so bring outdoor clothing and be prepared!

Kevan Manwaring is a writer based in Stroud. He teaches for the Open University. He was a consultant on latest series of BBC4’s The Secret Life of Books. He writes for The London Magazine, and was the co-judge of their 2015 Short Story competition alongside Susan Hill.
