Hope to see you all there.
I am really sorry it appears some people did not see this post about Ali Shaw’s excellent workshop, so here it is again.
Ali Shaw author of the prize winning novels The Girl with Glass Feet, The Man Who Rained and The Trees (out next year) led an entertaining, thought-provoking and at times just plain provoking workshop. We wrote with biros, pencils, marker pens and crayons on sheets of in landscape and portrait position, in the middle and up and down and round about – I hope you get the idea. Though he talks very persuasively Ali failed to wean me off writing direct onto my computer, but it was definitely enjoyable. Discussion flowed. Those who didn’t come missed a treat.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday June 24th at The Friend’s Meeting House, The Oxford Quaker House, 43 St Giles, Oxford, 7-9 pm.
This will be a feedback session so please bring something to share if you wish, or just come and give your feedback. I will try and have two authors there so we can divide into groups to ensure everyone has a nice long time to read and talk.
Those who missed the favourite book evening last year may also want to bring a book to recommend.
