How can writers capture the merging elements and uncertain edges of the coast? How do we pin ephemeral thoughts and fleeting experiences on the page? Join writer and psychogeographer Sonia Overall for an on-the-hoof workshop, exploring ambulatory writing techniques and texts. Walking liminal spaces around Folkestone harbour, consider innovative methods from works by Modernist walking-writers Virginia Woolf and James Joyce, and readings from contemporary coastal writing. Drawing on these techniques, practice mapping your own ideas as you tread the line between land and sea. Workshop materials will be provided. Participants will be given a copy of the 'Writing on the Edge' project pamphlet, with further writing prompts, samples and exercises, to take home.
Please wear sensible footwear and come dressed for the weather. The group will meet in a sheltered spot near the harbour; please be aware that the group will be outside for the duration of the event. Spaces are limited so advance booking is essential. Full details of our meeting place and nearby facilities will be sent to participants after booking.
