Book Launch: Simon Holloway

The Words We Use are Black and White.

Well known to many as the tutor of the MIND Creative Writing Course held in Ucheldre, it is with great pleasure that tonight sees the launch of Simon Holloway’s new novel, The Words We Use are Black and White.

Set in Evian on the shores of Lake Geneva the novel follows the interaction between friends and family with the arrival of a newcomer from Geneva.

‘A compelling story of human relationships. Holloway’s intriguing characters struggle to communicate in a world steeped in images of language.  A hugely enjoyable read.’ – David Crystal

Literary Rhwng: ‘The lighting of the lamps’ Saturday 6 December10am

Rhwng: ‘The lighting of the lamps’

Led by Fiona Owen and Dr Keith Beasley

Each Rhwng event takes a theme as its starting point in order to explore - through creative and explorative writing, poetry, story, metaphor and myth – ways to connect ideas with experiences, words with world, inscape with outscape. ‘Rhwng’ (‘between’): an integrating word, opening as space, relationship, question. As the year deepens and we move towards the longest night, we will explore themes of light-in-darkness, losing, finding and new birth. What IS the creative spark? Or en-lighten-ment? How does this light help us to truly see and to really know? The day is open to all levels of ability and interest. Please bring pens, notebooks and, if possible, something related to the theme to read or sing (of your own or others’ work) for the culminating session of the day.

Fiona Owen writes poetry and prose, and her publications include Going Gentle and Imagining the Full Hundred, with Screen of Brightness co-written with poet Meredith Andrea. The Green Gate will be published by Cinnamon in 2015. Fiona teaches creative writing, literature and other arts subjects for the Open University, is training as a Focusing Practitioner, writes songs with Gorwel Owen and runs ‘Rhwng: the Point Between’ events at Canolfan Ucheldre Centre.

Keith Beasley has a rare ability to embrace mind, body and soul in all he does. Originally trained as an electronic engineer he then took up Reiki Healing, eventually running retreats in Portugal. In 2013 he completed his PhD at Bangor University on Transcending Thought– higher level of consciousness. He is now a visionary with the Body Mind Institute, a life coachand soft-skills trainer, always open to new ways of integrating the creative process into his life and work.
