TAKING WORDS TO THE EDGE

Saturday 8 May, 2021: Creative Writing Workshop with Julia McGuinness.

Whether part of our outer or inner landscape, ‘edgeland’ spaces draw us out of our comfort zone. This unsettling territory is often unobserved or even unnamed, yet edgelands can also be ‘places of possibility, mystery and beauty,’ with the opportunity for a creative response both in our lives and the page.

In this workshop, we will seek to identify and explore some of these spaces, to discover what may emerge when we take our words to the edge.

Julia, who lives in Ellesmere Port, is currently Poet-in-Residence at Chester Cathedral. The city inspired her debut collection, Chester City Walls (Poetry Space 2015).

She is also a counsellor and writing practitioner, who regularly runs ‘Write for Growth’ workshops to foster creativity and wellbeing.

An inspirational workshop for adult writers of all levels of experience, including first timers.
