WORKSHOPS

If you are interested in developing a new creative writing project or would like ME4Writers to devise and lead a creative writing workshop for you, then please email us.

We are able to offer to help you evolve a range of events including readings, workshops, and retreats. Here are some examples of workshops we have devised and led…

CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS
For MALSC

ME4’s Sam and Barry led a three hour workshop in July 2012 at the fascinating Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre (worth a visit if you have never been there). The workshop was about using reference sources to create a short story.

For Medway libraries
Sam led two creative writing workshops in November 2012 for adults and children on letter writing linked to the ‘Letters Home’ exhibition.

FUSE Festival
Sam led a 3-hour ‘Starting to write your play’ workshop, as part of the FUSE festival 2009, in collaboration with Chatham Library.

As part of FUSE 2013, we held four 2-hour creative writing workshops in libraries around Medway – our ‘WordShops’; where the attendees contributed to our free publication, The Seed Catalogue, which we distributed from our shed during the festival. Writing exercises and prompts covered the topics of Fuse, Festivals and Summer.

Footfall, April and May 2014
Sam led some writing workshops for the Gravesend Arts Consortium’s Footfall project in April and May.

Art in the Park, July 2014
Sam and Barry set up their gazebo in Milton Creek Country Park as part of Art in the Park, where we invited children and adults alike to write poems and prose inspired by the environment.
