Do you remember your first love? Did you marry your childhood sweetheart? Did you have a glorious affair with a secret lover? Is your love story a fairy-tale ‘Happy Ever After’, is it simply shades of grey, or is it tragedy and heartbreak all the way?
Join us to write about REAL women in (and out of) love, using your own life experience, wishful thinking, or a subtle blend of both! And because love isn’t just about romance, what about celebrating the other loves in your life? Your passion for your home, garden, music, parents, pets, children, your car, or a beautiful view?
The good news is that there are hundreds of competitions at home and abroad for poets and short story writers, and during the course we’ll be learning insider tips and tricks about the fun and the pitfalls of entering those LOVE(ly) poetry and short story writing competitions.
Research tells us that writing expressively is therapeutic, relaxing and good for you. It enhances well-being and boosts self-confidence. Together we’ll explore routes to creative writing with music, location, colours, language essential oils and the seasons. Whether you’ve never written anything but shopping lists, or whether you’ve been a secret scribbler for years, escape to Denman and take time out to experience the gentle joys of creative expressive writing and find your own unique inner creative voice.
You could begin a journal, a story or a memoir, become a diarist or explore your poetic self? Reconnect with your creativity and enjoy writing with a small supportive group of like-minded people; nurture your writerly talents and see how they’ll blossom.
This course is relaxed and friendly, men and women both equally welcome. Creative expressive writing for beginners is suitable for all ages and abilities, including those with no experience of writing.
Price includes comfortable spacious single ensuite rooms (some double/twin rooms available) all with tea/coffee making facilities and full board, with varied menus of delicious meals, including cooked breakfasts, morning coffee, lunch, tea and cake in the afternoon and a three course evening dinner with tea/coffee.
