CREATIVE WRITING – ALL-HALLOWS EVE
In one of our most popular workshops, join Emily Tough for a relaxed writing session to contemplate the season of reflection and memory.
The origins of All-Hallows Eve are traced back to Celtic times when the new year was celebrated on November 1.
This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain [pronounced sow-in], when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. (history.com)
This creative writing workshop is designed to connect us to the changing season and reflect on the cold times ahead. It offers you dedicated time to explore your relationship with Autumn. And yes, you can bring your gothic thoughts along.
You will be guided through prompts and tasks which will help you unlock your creativity. This workshop focuses on mindfulness and the freedom of creative expression to help generate meaningful poetry and prose.
Bring your favourite pen and notepad or we can provide writing utensils. This workshop is suitable for beginners or for writers that enjoy having a kick-start to their writing practice.
