Creative Writing Workshop – Upcycle Old Headlines

On Tuesday 22 May 2018

At Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6QN


Description
Script WritingA special opportunity to gain creative writing inspiration and obtain guidance from successful playwright and former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy said: “Inspiration comes from all quarters of life; the postman with a limp, the bus driver who is always on time, the setting sun. In this workshop, we will find ideas from delving into old newspaper headlines. We don’t need to upcycle the stories (although that is also a possibility) but there is plenty of stimulation in the headlines themselves. New stories from old.” Intended for adult visitors. This event must be pre-booked and includes park entry admission on the day of the workshop.

Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6QN
Description
Script WritingA special opportunity to gain creative writing inspiration and obtain guidance from successful playwright and former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy said: “Children like good stories; ones they can connect with. In this workshop, we will discuss how to achieve these without falling into clichés and dull storylines. We will find exciting and unusual characters, who will lead us to tell our young readers about adventures and exploits that they will love to listen to again and again. We will also look at why the details matter and how to ‘paint’ them into our stories making them seem natural and realistic no matter how fantastic or grotesque.” Intended for adult visitors. This event must be pre-booked and includes park entry admission on the day of the workshop.

NB: This is a workshop for children

On Wednesday 1 August 2018
Location: Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6QN
Description
Script WritingA special opportunity to gain creative writing inspiration and obtain guidance from successful playwright and former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy said: “Stories and poems about wizards and magic abound and you would think there was nothing more to be said on the subject. In this workshop though, we will encourage children to write their own stories and poems by creating unique characters and the weird and wonderful world they live in. There is much magic in a child’s imagination and this is a chance to let it out.” Each child will be given a special notebook to use during the workshop, which they can take home to continue their writing. Recommended for children aged 7 and above. This event must be pre-booked and includes park entry admission on the day of the workshop.
