Clare Reddaway runs occasional short story workshops connected to Story Fridays. Clare has run writing workshops for many years: at festivals and arts centres with Bristol short story collective Heads and Tales, for Julian House homeless charity in Bath, for the Refugee Centre in Bristol, for the University of the Third Age in Bath. Her background as a script editor for the BBC and Granada TV and her MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa gives her experience of working with a wide range of writers.
Clare holds the workshops at Bath Central Library, and would like to thank June Wentland, Reader Development Officer for Bath Central Libraries, for her help and support.
What the writers thought:
At a recent ‘Memories’ workshop the participants said: ‘I had a fantastic and liberating time’, ‘stimulating, emotional, encouraging’, ‘inspiring’, ‘makes you think’, ‘I enjoyed it very much’.
At a ‘story’ workshop, where we worked on structure and narrative, the writers said: ‘Inspiring and engaging’, ‘SO helpful’, ‘Friendly feedback’, ‘I liked the mixture of tips, facts and writing exercises’, ‘Fun’, ‘Loved it’.
On Clare’s ‘Writing for Performance’ workshop the writers said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the small group and how supportive it felt.” “Totally inspiring!” “Supportive, convivial atmosphere.” “Brilliant. Well constructed. Interesting and informative. Well executed” “Really helpful” “Loved it – loved it all!”
Workshops Coming Up:
All of the workshops aim to be supportive and encouraging to writers of short stories at all levels. Clare provides exercises which are stimulating and inspiring (hopefully!) in a warm, friendly atmosphere. There is one workshop available to book:
Saturday MARCH 25th, from 10.00-1.00. The theme will be STORY – structure, plot, shape. The workshops used to be held at Bath Central Library but the Library is in some turmoil at the moment, as there is a threat over its future. Therefore the workshop will be held at my home in Camden in Bath. Cost is £5. (Parking in Camden a nightmare? I can offer all participants a parking voucher for £1).
To book your place please contact Clare here. Book early to avoid disappointment. I look forward to seeing you!
