Hi there, due to the current government guidelines on social distancing due to COVID-19, workshops are currently on hold but you can find out about what I offer below,
Thank you and I hope to re-start the workshops as soon as I can, in the meantime, stay safe everyone and check out my Blogs if you would like to take part in some creativity.
The Curious Creative Club delivers invigorating writing workshops to participants with the specific purpose of setting your creativity free,…it’s a restorative and inspiring few hours, just for you.
I’m a huge advocate of all things creative, with current passions in writing, art and photography, and I know, first-hand, and from studying, the huge impact that taking part in creative activities can have on your well-being and self-worth.
I want to enable people to take time out from their busy lives and have the mental space to tap into their creativity and imagination, through writing and literally just give it a go. Most importantly, it’s about enjoying just playing with your ideas and bringing them to life.
My next writing workshop is ‘Writing from Personal Experience’, the first of which ran in October 2019.
However due to having chemo treatment for 6 months and now the current situation with COVID-19, new dates will follow when social distancing is over and I am allowed to host these again.
In the meantime, please do register your interest at the end of this page on the contact form and I will add you to the waiting list, thank you.
Here are the details of the workshop:
Creative Writing Workshop – Writing from Personal Experience
Time arrive 6.50pm for a 7pm prompt start – 9.30pm approx.
Cost £35 per person includes hot drink and delicious piece of Miriam’s cake!
Who is this for? People who want to convey their own personal stories in a variety of ways, for example through:
Participants may want to do this just for themselves, as a mindful activity or for well-being reasons such as journaling, or they may want to take it one step further and share their experiences publicly via blog posts, short stories or even to produce a full memoir.
The exercises that I’ll take you through will help to develop your skills in writing personal stories and most importantly give you the confidence to do so, in a safe, informal space with a small group of like-minded people.
Writing about your own life can be challenging but there are ways to make it easier and more interesting for the reader. The great part is that everyone’s story is unique, no-one has a story exactly the same as yours or the same voice to tell it with;
This is your super-power to use to your advantage and create great writing through your unique story telling.
This workshop will help you to get your story down and give you the techniques to add depth, emotion and setting atmosphere through a variety of interesting tasks (no spoilers sorry!).
So, what are the additional benefits to telling your story?
What you’ll get from this workshop:
Places are limited to 8 people per evening to give the best possible experience to participants.
If you have an queries or to book, please get in touch via the contact form below or you can direct message me on Instagram @thecuriouscreativeclub or speak to Miriam when visiting the café.
Just one of the many tempting cakes you’ll receive from Miriam’s Kitchen Table!
