Coastal landscapes are sites of arrival and departure, innovation, invasion and reinvention, where new thinking is possible and strange forms are washed up by the tide… Join tutors from CCCU’s Creative Writing team for an interactive workshop in Folkestone Museum, drawing on traditions and innovations in seaside literature to create new writing.
Try your hand at cut-up and collage forms; experiment with writing the uncanny; look again at Folkestone’s fascinating past; and be inspired by items in the museum collection.
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. Spaces are limited so advance booking is essential.
