Write On is a LinkUp Arts pilot initiative for adults who want to write but maybe don’t know how to begin.
“It’s writing that allows you to explore issues and personal development through the medium of words.” Gini. Here you can create dialogue, characters, sounds and scripts that give voice to your untold stories.You can play with language and structure, have fun with comedy and get dramatic with your imagination…
Use the sessions for unblocking, expressing emotions, exploring or writing your life, or just for fun and the love of writing. Write for yourself, or create pieces with publishing or production in mind. These friendly, non-competitive sessions will be led by Angela Street who will give you inspiring and extraordinary things to do and write during the session, guaranteed to blow away cobwebs and tumbleweed.
The rooms in Sarum College are light, warm, airy and beautifully inspiring.
The sessions are supported by LinkUp Arts and are open to all. We welcome writers from all walks of life, particularly from marginalised communities.
