Sessions to keep your imagination on its toes and stretch your writing skills through play. An opportunity for new writers, those looking for fresh inspiration or wishing to bring more creativity into their lives. We will explore language, perspective, and the unexpected meeting of images through a series of original and varied exercises.
Craft texts with a sense of fun, throw rules to the wind, re-wild your writing and discover what blossoms with a little carefree abandon.
These sessions bring flexibility to thinking and writing, freeing the imagination, adding new methods and ways to your writer's toolbox, making you more versatile and helping you to write fresh passages and resolve issues in longer pieces of work.
They aid in releasing 'writers' block', honour your inherent creativity, encourage self-expression and support well-being.
Explore language and expand the realms of your imagination as we play with words, pictures, music and objects. Exercises are innovative and varied.
A great course for new writers, those looking for fresh inspiration and people wishing to bring more creativity into their lives.
"The course helped take me out of my comfort zone and I was able to dive deeper into my own imagination. I gained a new perspective on creative writing and the many forms it can take." Morgan, 2020
"I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed the Writing course 'Play and Imagination' with Samantha Forrest. It's been very imaginative and hugely enjoyable.." Carol, 2020
"My writing is being transformed by Samantha's sessions -- much more vivid, colourful and alive. Fun and challenging exercises, with all sorts of visual and audio stimuli, give permission to explore in a supportive environment. I now approach writing in an entirely different way, expanding my understanding and imagination for conveying aspects of (sometimes quite ordinary!) things. I have more awareness of the words I choose and the feelings I hope to evoke in a reader. It's been liberating as a new writer -- and I only signed up for fun!" Roz, 2020
