ONLINE 5-week Short Course: Writing About Covid-19 series: The not-locked-down Key Workers
With Thomas Glave
Wednesdays, 7-9pm, starting 8 September, then 15, 22, 29 September and 6 October
Online, via Zoom
You’ve had to work during Covid, no choice. You’ve had to go out into the world every day, no matter how you felt. What did you see? What did you hear? What were your feelings through it all?
This is where your stories begin, the stories that only you can tell. They begin with you talking about them and writing about them. This course will allow you to discuss issues that matter to you, and free your imagination to develop your unique voice that you ‘ll be able to express through your writing.
Together, in a group of no more than 14, for 2 hours a week over 5 weeks, we’ll work on your telling these stories. We’ll work together to help your memories take shape on the page. We will also listen to each other’s stories and read ours aloud. Writing exercises will also be provided to help you begin to write.
The course is intended for all writers, including beginners.
