Rhwng Led by Fiona Owen and Eileen Dewhurst
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 days shorten and autumn deepens, we will
explore themes of transition, shifts, surrender and maturation through a
consideration of that fine line between different modes of writing – the
therapeutic and the art-making. It is open to all levels of ability and interest,
with no creative or therapeutic writing experience necessary. Please bring
pens, notebooks and any friends who might be interested – and, if possible, something
related to the seasonal theme to read or sing for the final session.
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.
Dewhurst is an experienced health professional with
a diploma in therapeutic counselling.
She has an MA in Creative Writing and has published both poetry and
short stories. She has a long-standing interest in the role of creativity in
the process of healing.
