TO A CREATIVE WRITING TASTER DAY
ON FRIDAY 23RD AUGUST 2019
teachers spend their time immersed in poetry and prose, but rarely have the
opportunity to be creative themselves.
That’s why we’re offering a full day of tutored workshops in the tranquil Lake District setting of Patterdale Hall, absolutely free of charge.
All you have to do is bring your imagination and a pen.
Poetry workshops will be led by Peter Sansom, a poet and expert tutor with many years’ experience. Peter will share his brilliant repertoire of exercises to inspire you to write spontaneously as well as provide you with valuable feedback.
prose sessions will be led by Jane Kingsford, a creative writing practitioner.
Jane will offer tried and tested prompts to enable you to create original
characters and plots. You will be given plenty of ideas to take away, adaptable
for a variety of classroom settings.
There will also be an opportunity to look around our superb facilities and discuss the possibility of bringing your own pupils for a Creative Writing Retreat in the future. (Additional information about our writing courses has already been sent to your school.)

10.30 – 1.00 writing workshops with short break
