Engaging with the landscapes we know and love
Looking for the right words to catch the real feeling of a place is often a way of learning to see it for the first time. This creative writing workshop will encourage you to take pleasure in turning our landscape and cityscape into words and in sharing what you write.
Based at Kelston Old Barn, Kelston Roundhill, take your inspiration from the views and the surrounding countryside, or else use the workshop time to reflect on aspects of the Bath landscape you already know and love. Whether or not you’ve ever written anything before, Bath writer, Sue Boyle will guide and support you.
With your permission, writings created at the workshop will be shared on the Bathscape website and displayed in Bath over the winter for others to enjoy.
