Open City: A Creative Writing & Walking Workshop

About Open City: A Creative Writing & Walking Workshop

There is a rich tradition of writing through walking in the city, from Virginia Woolf to Teju Cole, and we will share some of this writing as inspiration for our own. Using quick writing exercises, we will develop new ways of paying attention to our built and natural environment and connect these observations to our own interior worlds.

Joanna is running 3 creative writing workshops over the Autumn/Winter, take part in 1, 2 or all of them to develop your creative writing skills.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Open City: A Creative Writing & Walking Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
