Event presented in partnership with
Write About Walking A/way:
creative writing workshop with walk•listen•create
Sunday 16 April, Zoom, 4pm
(NB: tickets managed by walk•listen•create)
Cheryl Markosky and Tony Horitz, winners of walk•listen•create's 2022 Write About Walking competition and their 2022/3 writers-in-residence, invite you to a free online creative writing workshop to inspire you to submit written pieces in the Write About Walking A/way competition. The competition will be launched at the workshop.
Cheryl and Tony were tasked with coming up with the theme for the competition and chose Walking A/way: Walking Away or Walking A Way – they will also make this theme central to this hour long creative writing workshop.
You can choose how you wish to interpret the theme in poetry or short prose. Your work can be fiction, creative non-fiction or memoir. You may interpret walking a/way however you wish, such as escaping from … or being drawn towards …. Or even walking in a certain way – confident or subdued…. Or walking a particular route.
