Carrotsmash One-Off Writing Workshop: Stories Are The Thing

Writers of all abilities! This exciting One-off workshop will introduce you to a series of inspirational ideas for structuring story and getting you writing. Wondering how you get started? Want to move your writing on? Together we’ll take a close look at beginnings and structuring story, with plenty of ‘pens on’ activities to try. If (and only if) you feel brave enough, you may be invited to share your responses in a supportive group atmosphere. All you’ll need with you is your enthusiasm (and a pen and some paper). Whatever your level of experience, this workshop will inspire you to write – and maybe push those boundaries a little. Ali Cargill is a published author, with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing (Distinction).

Peter Heaton

Over the past eighteen months I have spent many days walking in the Yorkshire Wolds trying to connect the idea of an inner landscape with the reality of outer ones.
The images produced for this project overlay layers of text, which relate to thoughts, ideas and observations made during this time, over black and white images of the distinctive Wolds landscapes .

This group of paintings developed from Nigel's interest in the way human beings use signs & symbols in a variety of contexts – prehistoric art (after a visit to the caves at Lascaux); modern road signs; signage in public buildings, corporate logos etc. There was a layer of meaning in these symbols and colours.
