Bourne To Write

I came across the Bourne To Write workshops leaflet while at my dentist where a number of colourful flyers had been cunningly left in the waiting room. Led by Roddy Phillips, the workshops will be run as a ten week course with the first Eastbourne session starting on the 19th of September - that's this Wednesday! There is a choice between attending the afternoon sessions - 14:15 to 16:15 - or the evening sessions - 19:15 to 21:15 - both of which will be held at St Saviour's Church Hall on South Street. 

Taking a student-centred approach to creative writing, the course will offer a range of strategies to help aspirational writers develop. Participants are encouraged to explore their creative writing potential through self-awareness and self-discovery. A wide range of genres will be covered, including classic and contemporary fiction, poetry, drama, journalism and life writing. There are timed exercises and participants will be given relevant homework each week and receive appropriate and constructive feedback. Bourne To Write are planning to eventually publish work by the workshop members and ‘e the magazine’ will also be publishing members’ work on their website.

Roddy has worked as a freelance journalist covering and reviewing the arts for more than thirty years. He has contributed to The Sunday Times, Scotland on Sunday, BBC Radio, STV and a range of magazines, including The Stage. He also runs other very popular Creative Writing Workshops in Scotland, the Lake District and in East Sussex.

The ten week course costs £120.
