Julia McGuiness, Poet in Residence at Chester Cathedral, joins us again to open our 2022 Festival with an opportunity to re-awaken our creative thinking and stimulate our imaginations.
Fresh thoughts, new ideas and old memories emerge as our bodies move in a gentle rhythm and our senses respond to our surroundings.
This writing workshop will focus on the process of walking with attentiveness to what is on the outside, and to the new connections arising on the inside. We will explore ways of bringing these together in words on the page.
As Charles Dickens, a prolific walker and writer observed:
“The best way to lengthen our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose”.
No previous experience of writing is necessary, just a willingness to enjoy warming up your creative muscles alongside a little bit of walking and observing.
The workshop will last one and a half hours with the option to stay and chat with Julia over tea/coffee afterwards.
No dogs please
