Writing in the wild

Saturday 24 June 2017
10am – 4:30pm, Newport Wetlands

Are you a budding Gerald Durrel? Do you wish you could write? Now is your chance!

On the 24th of June 2017, the RSPB Newport Wetlands near Newport are proud to host “Writing in the Wild” – a writing course aimed at adults who would love to unlock their creativity.

Dr Lucy Christopher is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University as well as a renowned successful author; her books include “Fly away”, “The Killing Woods” and “Stolen” which have been long listed for the Carnegie Award, shortlisted for the Costa Prize, the Waterstones Prize, Prime Minister’s Literary Awards and have won the Branford Boase and the Printz Honor Award.

She will encourage and inspire us to engage with our natural environment and capture, on the page, the settings and the places we will use in our own writing.

The course will cover fictional writing and includes one-to-one advice from an inspirational writer, many opportunities to engage with the beautiful environment, a guided tour of the Wetlands Reserve, to share ideas, to try new styles and approaches- and of course to write!

The event is supported by Literature Wales and no previous writing experience is necessary, just the desire to be creative and capture nature in the printed world.
