‘WRITE TO ROAM’ CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS 2014



‘WRITE TO ROAM’ CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS 2014
WITH CUMBRIAN WRITER GERALDINE GREEN

This ongoing series of monthly creative writing workshops explores where we live, how we dwell, 'deep maps', memory and myth. Through a variety of writing exercises, stimuli, feedback and reflective walks we will look at links between identity, language and environment. Whether through poetry, stories, travel writing, dreams or journals, these workshops encourage us to explore where and how we live, and how we take experience and memories with us when we travel to other places, real or imagined.

An experienced creative writing tutor and mentor, I’ve had five collections of poetry published; gained a PhD in Creative Writing titled: “An Exploration of Identity and Environment through Poetry” from Lancaster University. Travels and readings have taken me mainly to Europe and North America, where I’ve read at a variety of venues on the East and West coasts and the Mid West.
