6:30pm – 8:30pm
Writing the Future is a workshop for penning new beginnings with a forward-facing lens.
This facilitated workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to explore the future using prompted dynamic writing exercises to speculate, imagine and create anew. Each exercise will inspire new language and ways of creating. David will use a mixture of poetry and prose techniques to encourage free creative flow.
Participants are encouraged to imagine what lies beyond the horizon and write potential narratives for fictional characters and for themselves. Providing a supported environment that is suitable for all skill levels, experimentation is encouraged along with mistakes and happy accidents.
