The aim of this workshop is to help you become a better writer. And give you the confidence to make a submission to the Write about Walking home competition. Over the course of 120 minutes we’ll use two complementary forms – poetry and flash fiction – and draw inspiration from journeys on foot that we have made. We will look at how observation can inspire and hone fictional techniques; the benefits of movement to creative thinking and practice; as well as how to approach editing and preparing your work for submission or publication including ‘reading aloud’ and recording.

Led by prolifically published flash author E.E. Rhodes.

During the workshop you will learn more about submitting Write about Walking Home writing competition.

We are offering a number of early bird discounted tickets, and for those unable to genuinely afford the ticket price we have two subsidised tickets available, and two free places (Please get in touch if you qualify). Price of the workshop includes up to two free entries to the Write about Walking Home writing competition (worth €9).

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
