…The earthquake caught you,
and you ran
you broke your fingernails.
The waters and the stones
all were shaken…
from Valparaíso – Pablo Neruda
A new five-week live, interactive online course, writing our way through this time of continuing uncertainty and change.
In a small group (max 14 people), we’ll take inspiration from poetry and stories from around the world. Themes will include beginnings, change, uncertainty, curiosity and surprise. With writing time on-screen and off-screen, we’ll find connection, reflection and a place to share our work with others.
No prior writing experience is necessary. You can be writing in any genre.
