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.

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.

"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
