Facilitated by North East poet and tutor Natalie Scott, Seasonal Space to Write brings writers together, regardless of age, ability or discipline and where their interest may be in poetry or prose, report writing or simply recording daily events and experience
Each season will bring you space to write and the next day event will take place at Hall Garth Hotel and Country Club near Darlington, in the lounge-library with its comfy chairs, real fire and views over the parkland.
The day will begin with a stimulating warm-up activity which focuses on the process of writing. Participants will then have free time to work on a project or piece of writing in progress which they have brought with them, whether it is a mere scrap of an idea or a nearly polished piece. All will be invited to share ideas and receive feedback from others at the end of the day but to participate only as much as is felt comfortable.
The cost of £35 per person provides a delightful work space, writing warm-ups and feedback sessions, plus a buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Wi-Fi and car parking are free.
