Family Matters - Creative Writing Workshops
Using Shirley Goodsell's paintings as starting-points, the workshop will explore ways of writing about those people, family and friends, who feature in each individual's personal history and memory bank. Using examples by writers of prose, poetry and non-fiction the workshop will provide participants with opportunities to produce written responses in different forms and to then develop an original piece of creative writing.
