&
MAC DUNLOP

In this practical one day workshop, the Falmouth poet  Nick Jarvis – whose work has been showcased at Port Eliot, Telltales and The Night is Red here at the Poly – will lead this workshop alongside Mac Dunlop – the Caravanserai Project Writer and performer.  Together they will guide participants through some innovative approaches to inspiration and narrative.

Expect fun, thought provoking, writing warm ups, followed by a seminar session focusing on teasing stories out of the everyday.

We will take a look at how rules, structure and form can literally become sources of inspiration – not to mention how they can help to beat that infamous ‘writer’s block’.

The day will conclude with an optional ‘Recording Your Own Words’ session – an introduction to spoken word reading, performing and listening skills that can add to developing your written work. (And don’t worry, if you don’t want to read out your own work, that’s absolutely fine!)

To book a place go to The Poly Website, phone 01326 319461, or drop in to the box office (Mon-Sat, 10-4).
