Our space will be hosting two workshops on Saturday, October 12th, for the Rochester Literature Festival’s Other Worlds, Other Voices event.
Their ‘Bring Something to the Table’ event proved so popular in March, they couldn’t possibly leave it out of the main festival!
The Potlatch is a mix of writing games and interactive debate based upon the festival theme. With the wonderful collective poems produced last time, who knows what new voices may be discovered – one of them may be yours!
The event will take place between 11am – 1pm and spaces are limited, so booking is required at a small cost of £3. Please visit their Eventbrite page to secure your place(s). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Later, between 2pm – 4pm, Philip Kane will lead a fantasy and sci fi creative writing workshop, From Sorcery to Starships. Author, poet and storyteller Philip is a lifelong enthusiast for fantasy and science fiction. His own writings in those genres include stories about thieves, occult detectives and alien infiltration. In this workshop he’ll be introducing us to some of the key elements in creating believable fantasy worlds, characters and stories, from swords-and-sorcery to space opera.
Spaces are limited; tickets are £3 and need to be booked on the RLF Eventbrite page here.
