Writing Words of Wonder – Shoreline Stories

Date(s) - 11/02/2022
11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The aim of this workshop is to help you become a better nature writer. Over the course of 90-120 minutes we’ll use two complementary forms – haiku and flash fiction – and draw inspiration from the shoreline (sea, lake, pond, river or stream) and other parts of the natural world. We will look at how observation can inspire and hone fictional techniques; the benefits of movement to creative thinking and practice; as well as how to approach editing and preparing your work for submission or publication including ‘reading aloud’ and recording.

Led by prolifically published flash author E.E. Rhodes and Andrew Stuck, founder of the Museum of Walking and co-producer of Sound Walk September.

All works submitted as a read aloud piece to the Walk Listen Create Shorelines project automatically get entered into a Sound Walk September prize draw. During the workshop you will gain practice in submitting to the Shorelines project.
