Conspire to Inspire the Teachers

Residential/Non-residential Creative Writing Course: with John Hegley and Rommi Smith, two writers of educational, performing and outreach experience: 29 May, 4.00pm - 3 June, 10.00am.

This course enables upper primary and secondary teachers/mentors/those working in education to focus on their own writing and develop workshop techniques. It will explore the issue of identity, investigate the senses, use poems to free ideas such as Adrian Mitchell's Yes and take a look at some myths and legends. For example, George and the Dragon - could George have tried negotiation? The overall aim is an atmosphere of curiosity, creative play and discovery which will leave participants fuelled up, tooled up and fluid.

The course is held at The Garsdale Retreat set in the stunning beauty of The Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Course Fees: Residential: single/ensuite room: £750; single/shared bathroom; £700; shared room (2 beds) £650
Non-residential: £500.
