Creative Writing Workshop with Katie Hale

The days are getting longer and green shoots are pushing through the frost...

Spring will soon be here! So why not celebrate with us through the written word? Whether you’re an experienced poet, or you’re completely new to writing, come along to an online workshop with Cumbrian poet & novelist Katie Hale. We’ll look at how other writers have written about the changing seasons and have a go at putting our own experiences and observations into words.

Katie Hale is an internationally recognised novelist & poet, with more than a decade’s experience of leading creative writing workshops.

Her novel, My Name is Monster, was shortlisted for the Kitschies Golden Tentacle Award, and has been translated into multiple languages. She is a former MacDowell Fellow and winner of the Munster Chapbook Prize. She has also featured on national television and radio, including programmes such as Radio 4’s Open Book and Front Row, and has created commissioned work for the National Trust, the Barbican Centre, and the BBC Contains Strong Language poetry festival.

She leads writing workshops for universities, arts organisations and schools. She also mentors emerging writers on a one-to-one basis.

This a free workshop for up to 12 participants which will take place online via the zoom platform. Full support to get connected will be available if needed. Follow up sessions with Katie will be available on Thurs 4th and Mon 8th to Weds 10th March.
