Write Your Heart Out with Peggy Riley – £5

Saturday 18 May

Horsebridge Centre, Whitstable    

11am-12.30pm

Sometimes we have so much to say that the words get stuck between our minds and our fingers, but our workshops will help you to free up your ideas and commit them to the page.   If you’ve always wanted to write, but didn’t know how to get started, this is the place for you.  Come write yourself right!  On the first session, we’ll all be writing from pictures to help ideas come.  Through guided prompts about place and the senses, these pictures and ideas will slowly turn into short story beginnings.  All you need is a notebook and a pen – we’ll provide the rest!  

Peggy Riley is the author of ‘Amity and Sorrow’ and is  currently lecturing for the Creative & Professional Writing programme at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Wise Words for Wellbeing with Victoria Field 

Sunday 19 May

Horsebridge Centre

11am-12.30pm - £5

Lots of us find we are drawn to writing at times of emotion, whether sadness or joy.  And many people have a favourite poem that they carry with them for inspiration or solace.  Come and explore the power of poetry to help us live more fulfilling and happier lives.  We will read some poems together and write in response. No experience necessary and you can participate as much or as little as you wish. Please bring a notebook and something to write with.
