Come along to the Creative Writing workshop at Wareham Library.

2nd March from 10 am – 11.30 pm 

All ages welcome, children must be accompanied

The workshop will be run by Ben Lindsey-Clark, Creative Director of Treehouse Theatre, and Charmaine Kay who is a director of Doppelganger Productions (new writing) and Artistic Director of SISATA who turn classic novels into theatre. They are both on the competition judging panel too. The workshop will be full of tips and techniques for short story writing, games, and exercises for generating ideas and practicing skills, and a Q&A about the Shaftesbury Tales.

The event is part of their Shaftesbury Tales project. Inspired by Chaucer and the dastardly murder of teenage Saxon King Edward in Corfe, ‘The Shaftesbury Tales’ will walk from Corfe to Shaftesbury in July, village to village, stopping to perform hilarious and interactive family shows along the way, featuring murder, miracles and mischief from Dorset in the Dark Ages.

The group are also running a Short Story Writing Competition – in just 500 words … capture the characters and intrigue, fun and drama of Dorset in the Dark Ages.  The competition is open to everyone of any age living in Dorset.
