Creative Writes will be providing a dedicated fortnightly space to write, with the first Space To Write Wednesday taking place on Wednesday 09 May 2018, from 7.30 – 9.30pm.
In addition to guided free flow creative writing exercises, you will have the choice of developing your own work, at your own pace and taking inspiration from the resources Nichola brings along – which will vary with each workshop. For example; there will be poetry, images & objects and lists of topics for you to choose from.
Creative Writes will be collaborating with NLB (North London Brass) Highgate & Muswell Hill Band.
The Band will be performing ‘Reflections In Brass’ at Highgate URC, Pond Square Chapel, Highgate Village on the evening of Wednesday 27th June 2018.
The concert will commemorate the First World War. Creative Writes has been invited to work with them in the lead up to the concert.
During our Space To Write Workshops in May & June, in addition to the other exercises, you will have the option to write to music which the band will be playing at the concert. As a group, we will then select the pieces that you may wish to read at the concert. The band will play the music to accompany your writing. There may also be a chance for us to send your writing to the band, in advance of the concert, so that they select music in response to your writing, to play at the concert.
Creative Writes are very excited about this new collaboration!
