Write your story (U3A members)
Fri 20 April 09.30- 13.00 free to U3A (R10 for tea) others by donation + R10 for tea
Everyone has story to tell and can learn to write it. Writing is about a conversation with yourself and with others. An exchange of energies. It is a skill drawn from attention and openness – an organic process rather than a talent.

In this wordshop we explore our innate creativity and imagination and find the words to tell our stories… to make them more alive. The wordshop covers all kinds of writing – family stories, memoirs, fiction. I also focus on how to be present in your writing and engage the reader as a creative partner. Beginners are welcome.
Bring writing materials. Venue: Somerset West TBA
