Everyday Magic: The Four Elements of Creativity

Would you like to add a spark of magic to your writing? In this day-long workshop, we’ll energise our instincts as writers by working holistically with the four elements:

  • Fire - to give our voices strength and purpose
  • Water – to evoke feeling
  • Earth – to embody all the senses with action and detail
  • Air – to bring focus and structure to our stories

We’ll discuss a variety of inspirations and departure points, including fairy tales, poems, and memories, and in doing so summon new powers to free our intuition, and bring depth, texture, and balance to our writing.

For beginners in search of ideas as well as experienced writers looking for fresh perspectives.
