Autumn notebook
Creative Writing Weekend

The theme of this Spring Writing Weekend is nature and imagination. Led by experienced tutor, author, and Untold Stories Academy founder, Francesca Tyer, it is aimed at those looking for ways to unlock their creative potential and harness the power of the written word.

About the weekend:

The Power of Imagination Workshop (Saturday 21st, 13:00-16:00)

Imagination enables us to experience different realities; we can appreciate different perspectives, travel to new places and visualise possible futures. Whether conceiving realist or abstract concepts, our imaginative scope is almost limitless. In this workshop, you will be expertly guided through a series of creative exercises (reading, sensory prompts, craft-based tasks) designed to help you unlock your imagination and bring your ideas to life on the page. There will be a comfort break in the middle where you can enjoy tea and cake!

Story Sharing (Saturday 21st, 17:00-18:30)

If you have booked the residential package, you will be invited to join this story-sharing session where you will be asked to share a favourite prose extract or poem for the group to discuss. During the evening, you’ll also enjoy a sushi meal or Mezze board depending on your choice.

Inspiration in Nature Guided Walk (Sunday 22nd, 10:00-12:00)

Nature is a wonderful source of inspiration. On Sunday morning, you will venture out on a guided walk of the local area. During the walk, you will be encouraged to take notes about your surroundings, for example the sights, sounds and smells you encounter along the way. Don’t worry! You will have help with this the whole way and will also have a prompt worksheet should you need.

Inspiration in Nature Workshop (Sunday 22nd, 13:00-16:00)

After lunch, you will join your final workshop. In this session, you will be using the notes and observations you made during your walk to develop your writing from the previous day

or start a fresh piece of poetry, descriptive writing or a story. You will be guided along the way and taught how to bring your words to life on the page. As in our first workshop, tea and cake will be provided.

You can expect to come away from the weekend with a group of writer friends, a full notebook, a new or renewed sense of confidence in your writing abilities, and plenty of tools to help you set out on your writing journey.
