Writing Inspired by Art:
A Creative Writing Workshop
I’m running a free online creative writing workshop, based around the Cynon Valley Museum’s online art exhibitions, on Saturday 27th June.
This two-hour workshop will take place from 10am, via Zoom. It’s open to anyone, whether or not you have any previous experience of creative writing, but space will be limited so you’ll need to book a place in advance by emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your name will be added to the list and you will receive instructions and the zoom link a few days before the workshop.
You can also find details of this event on Facebook.
The workshop will include an opportunity to write your own creative response to the online art exhibitions.

Her PhD research explores the benefits of using creative writing in art museums, and she’s particularly interested in examining the writing process. She’s written articles and reviews for magazines and websites such as Wales Arts Review and The Poetry School, and one of her poems was shortlisted for the 2019 Bridport Prize. She regularly runs creative writing workshops, and has also organised some more unusual literary events, including an exhibition of photographs and poems for the madeinroath community arts festival, and a poetry performance to mark the centenary of Edward Thomas.
