The Lit Platform’s committed to developing skills, sharing knowledge and building new networks, and over 2020 we’ll be running interactive seminars for young creatives all across the South West.
From virtual reality sessions that conjure alternate universes to screen-writing sessions with a pro – we’ll be working with authors, academics and artists to share creative inspiration and industry wisdom.
Here’s what’s coming up first…
On February 26th (12.15-2pm), astrophysicist Professor Nathan Mayne (University of Exeter) and dystopian novelist Amy Lilwall (The Biggerers) will bring other worlds and the chance to play with virtual reality to A-level students at Exeter College, in a storytelling workshop inspired by astrophysics and alternate realities.
On April 26th (11am-3pm), Craig Barr-Green and YA novelist Emily Barr are coming to the Writer’s Block, Camborne to help aspiring writers build extraordinary new worlds and create the characters that live in them. The workshop’s open to anyone aged 11 – 25 and you’ll be able to workshop dystopias, fantasy and speculative fiction across various media: the only limit is your imagination.
Travel for low income attendees to this workshop will be subsidised up to £10 per person for 10 people.
