"From Solstice to Winter Hearth"

with Adam Craig

   ‘From Solstice to Winter Hearth’ – a creative writing workshop with Adam Craig

A seasonal workshop that explores inner landscapes, both imagined and imaginal, and asks us to find that place within where we are most free to create. For poets and prose writers, beginners and beyond.

Adam Craig is a writer, editor and graphic designer, interested in landscapes both exterior and interior, and in developing ways in which we can use writing to explore these places. His writing has appeared in magazines and anthologies, and he has published a short story collection together with two novels. Adam lives and works in North Wales, where he helps run Cinnamon Press.

A warm welcome to all / Croeso cynnes i bawb

"Writing Short Stories, according to Flannery O'Connor"

with

Fiona Owen

‘Writing Short Stories, according to Flannery O’ Connor’

a creative writing workshop led by Fiona Owen. 

The American short story writer Flannery O’ Connor had things to say about how to write a convincing short story. Drawing on two of her essays, and examples from her own short stories, this workshop will provide plenty of food for thought, as well as practice in writing, following some of her suggestions. We will also look at micro-fiction, a more recent and popular form. All ranges of experience are welcome.

A warm welcome to all/Croeso cynnes i bawb.

Fiona Owen has had five collections of poetry published, the latest being The Green Gate (Cinnamon Press), and has published short stories, interviews, reviews and essays. She directs Ucheldre Literary Society and Rhwng: the Point Between at Ucheldre, teaches creative writing, literature and other arts/humanities subjects for the Open University, and writes and records songs with Gorwel Owen, the latest CD being Releasing Birds. She also runs ‘self/world’ writing events under the title Eye of the Storm. www.rhwng.com

Rosalind is banished, wrestling with her heart and her head.  With her cousin by her side, she journeys to a world of exile where barriers are broken down and all can discover their deeper selves.

The Taming of the Shrew

William Shakespeare

In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story. Justin Audibert (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) returns Shakespeare's fierce, energitic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of heirarchy and power.

Measure for Measure

William Shakespeare

"To whom should I complain?"

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.

Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production.
