Join New Writing South online for our Writers’ Week 2021.
Join us online for our first New Writing South Writers’ Week in October 2021 for a week of tailored activity focussed on the needs of writers, whatever stage they are at.
Featuring Stella Duffy, Beth Miller, Amer Anwar, Yvvette Edwards and Lou Tondeur, expect practical and inspiring sessions to help you get into a writing frame of mind, kickstart a new writing project, find the motivation to keep going or prepare to send work out into the world.
The week will begin with an exclusive Yoga for Writing session with Stella Duffy followed by a series of informative talks and workshops throughout the week plus a limited number of 1-1 writer surgeries with guest writers – book early to avoid disappointment.
16 October 2021Yoga is not about getting the poses right, writing is not about getting the words right, they’re both about giving it a go. We will connect yoga poses to writing exercises, exploring the physical nature of writing and how opening up body and breath can support our creativity.
17 October 2021What is the best way to get your writing project off the ground and avoid writer’s block, or writing your story into a hole that’s tricky to climb out of? In this informal, informative lecture, Amer will share his experience of writing and publishing his novels. He’ll talk through planning methods different authors use and why some prefer not to plan at all.
20 October 2021Are you struggling to maintain momentum in your writing life? Experiencing flagging energy or finding it hard work motivating yourself to get the writing done? Then come along and join Yvvette Edwards in this one-stop workshop designed to help you overcome your obstacles, banish your writing blues and find new pathways to reclaiming your creative mojo.
21 October 2021Making money from writing is more about mindset that you think it is. In this workshop, Louise will show you why and what to do about it. In a practical session – including lots of resources – she’ll lead several exercises to help you to understand how you are scuppering yourself when it comes to earning money from your writing.
22 October 2021You’ve finished your novel, memoir or non-fiction proposal and polished it to within an inch ofits life. Congratulations, that’s a huge achievement! Now it’s time to send it out into the publishing world to agents and editors. How can you ensure that your submission is as good as it possibly can be before you hit the send button?
