Telling our stories: A free creative writing workshop with Louisa Adjoa Parker in award-winning public art gallery
Telling our stories: People, places, and the natural world is a creative writing session hosted by Louisa Adjoa Parker, a writer and poet of English-Ghanaian heritage who lives in south west England. Louisa’s poetry and prose has been widely published and has been twice shortlisted by the Bridport Prize.
The Thelma Hulbert Gallery is an award-winning public art gallery in Devon, currently hosting an exhibition of new work by Ingrid Pollard, 2022 Turner Prize nominee.
This writing session will respond to the exhibition and some of its themes, particularly focusing on people and places, histories, and our relationship to the natural world.
As a multidisciplinary publisher that aims to push publishing possibilities and increase industry accessibility, a number of free places to the workshop are available exclusively to The Lit Platform community. Please see below details to register your interest.
Using other writers’ work for inspiration, as well as the exhibition itself, there will be a mix of discussions around the themes and warm-up activities, working towards creating a written piece (poetry or prose), either for performance or print, or perhaps both.
This workshop is free, and suitable for writers of all levels, from beginners to experienced writers.
Tuesday October 4th, 10am – 3pm. Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Elmfield House, Dowell Street, Honiton, EX14 1LX. Refreshments will be provided, please bring your lunch.
