Since Denise Bennett gave us such as beautiful sea-inspired poetry reading at the first Writers’ Retreat, held at Cobnor Activities Centre in August, Chichester Copywriter has asked the award winning poet back on 12th November, 2011, to provide guests with a Creative Writing Day in the same inspiring setting.
Wordsmiths can enjoy a full day of creative writing workshops with Denise Bennett (Planting the Snow Queen, Oversteps Books, 2011) who has an MA in Creative Writing. Denise not only runs creative writing and poetry workshops in the Chichester and Portsmouth area but she is also secretary of Portsmouth Poetry Society.
The Creative Writing Day will consist of a number of taster workshops, such as:
Diamonds of the Dust Heap: A workshop designed to gather ideas, looking at: Notebooks/Journals/Chapters of your life. Considering also Space and Place to write.
Opening Pandora’s Box: Who knows what story one item could lead us to? Please bring a small item to this session e.g. Glove/Baby Shoe/Necklace/Ornament.
How Are Poems Made?: Looking at the structure of poetry. Form/Language Rhyme and Rhythm.
Gateways/Barriers/Doors: We’ll start with an image and see where it takes us. Using imagery as a starting point for a story/poem.
Arriving from 9.00 am, guests will have the chance to meet fellow wordsmiths and enjoy a coffee amidst the beautiful surroundings of Cobnor in Chichester Harbour. Workshops will begin at 9.30 and run throughout the day, allowing guests some time to enjoy free-writing. A place on the Creative Writing Day costs £65 per person, including lunch and refreshments, and is limited to just 12 people.
