Saturday Morning: The Dialogue from the Heart – Kate Hawkes
Kate will lead you through a variety of writing ‘games’ towards a dialogue that arises straight from your creative unconscious. From completely ‘accidental’ writing prompts to a brief exploration of what makes a play - character, location and problem - you will eventually write short "plays" with 2 characters drawn from your experiences. Reaching into your inner awareness, this writing brings to life some of the deeper stories held within, transforming them through the telling.
Saturday Afternoon: The Writing of Art
The energy shifts as you engage your hands and mind quite differently, playing with texture, shape and form as you build a physical image of the creative process. We will blend collage and sculpture into a structure that inspires a piece of writing. This awakens a new appreciation and awareness of your personal creative process and allows your writing a new, intuitive starting point – with many optional outcomes.
