Have you ever put down a good book mid-sentence to wonder why the author could make you feel the way they did? Or what words actually mean, or if they mean the same to you and me? How is it that a well-written piece is well written for all of us?
In this series of writing workshops, we will try and understand how to incorporate basic elements of writing into your pieces so that they read exactly as you want them to. Or so that they are ambiguous enough for people to spend time figuring out what you're saying.
We'll begin with metaphors: that basic figure of speech everyone thinks they know but rarely get right. If you're free on a Sunday afternoon, come along for a stimulating challenge to some preconceptions, an acknowledging nod to some techniques and an overall affirmation to all things literature.
This session is kid-friendly.
The proceeds from this session will go towards making learning modules for children.
