Breathing Lightly :: Workshop Prep

I do like the idea of this… The writing inspirations, the ideas and the cake. Thought it only fair that I should let my Manchester readers know about this.

a slice of imagination

On Saturday, Rebecca Audra and I will be running our first writing workshop together at Madlab; Breathing Lightly. I’m a bit worried, and mostly excited. I haven’t run a workshop in several months and I’m really looking forward to this one.

Part of me wishes that we had put it later so that we had more time to prepare, particularly in terms of marketing. On the other hand, we hope it will be the first of many, and so it will provide a fantastic learning experience for the next one.


We tried to pick a weird and wide range of sources for the workshops – we want to make people think about different ways of writing about the body, and maybe look at finding inspiration in a genre of writing they wouldn’t have before. Each workshop has a very different focus. The morning workshop, ‘Out of Body’ will be more…

    Oh yes, I think the cake seals it.

    Thanks for sharing though! 🙂

    Hey, thank you so much for sharing this 🙂 Are you thinking about coming to the workshop?

      I’d like to write a collection of darkly witty (and some times down right amusing) personal essays on my thoughts & experiences that are relevant in todays society. Not sure if this particular work shop would be appropriate, or I’d be appropriate to it. Your thoughts?

        Any workshop would be appropriate if you felt you would get something out of it. The aim of our workshop (and most workshops like this!) is mainly to get people putting pen to paper, with the idea that any writing you do improves your ability to write coherently and confidently. Writing is just like anything else – practise makes perfect!

        We just want to get people writing. Specifically with this workshop, we also want to get people thinking about other topics or techniques they might not have tried.

        So yeah, if that sounds useful at all then I hope we’ll see you there 🙂
