Writing on the Edge of the Land and Sea

FREE Creative Writing Workshop as part of the Being Human Festival

Coastal landscapes are sites of arrival and departure, innovation, invasion and reinvention, where new thinking is possible and strange forms are washed up by the tide…

Join tutors from Canterbury Christ Church University’s Creative Writing team for an interactive workshop in Folkestone Museum, where we will draw on traditions and innovations in seaside literature to create new writing. Try your hand at cut-up and collage forms; experiment with writing the uncanny; look again at Folkestone’s fascinating past; and be inspired by items in the museum collection.

Workshop materials will be provided. Participants will be given a copy of our Writing on the Edge project pamphlet, with further writing prompts, samples and exercises, to take home.

Spaces are free but limited: advance booking essential and must be booked via Event Bright, click here to go to the booking page

Canterbury Christ Church University are also running a morning walkshop along Folkestone’s coast linked to the afternoon workshop, more details click here to go to the walkshop event page
