The rise of the Kraken
This Thursday evening (28th of July), the Portsmouth Writer’s Hub are hosting an evening session about responding to art. The absolutely thrilling thing is that these lovely writers are going to be responding to my art so it will be absolutely enthralling to see what comes out of the evening’s work.
If you would like to be a part of this evening, the details are outlined below, please visit:
July Hub will be a free creative writing workshop responding to art. Two of our writers will lead us through a creative writing journey in response to the artwork of a local Unrealist artist.
Jacqui Pack and James Bicheno, both having completed the series of workshops ‘Defining Movements: a journey through British Modern Art’ at the Gosport Gallery earlier this year (http://www.hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk/defining-movements-journey-through-british-modern-art), will lead us through creative writing exercises inspired by the artwork of Jon Everitt. There will be character creating exercises and descriptive exercises to help you come up with new poems, flash fictions, short stories or the beginning of a longer tale. Both tutors and the artist will be on hand for any questions and tips.
There will be a chance to share some of your newly written work at the end of the workshop, as well as post them online and even submit them to the artist so that your stories actively complement his artwork in upcoming exhibitions and publications.
