Teesside writers and experts in creative education Andy Willoughby & Bob Beagrie, of Ek Zuban Literature Development, in association with Stockton Library Service, will run two practical writing workshops in Stockton Central Reference Library, looking at how writers use archive photographs and historical documents to create poetry, fiction and scripts.

Workshop 1: Saturday 3rd December, 10am – 4pm

Writing from maps and photographs, bringing the still image to life through research and imaginative techniques, employing storytelling, poetic and dramatic techniques.

Workshop 2: Saturday 17th December, 10am – 4pm

Drawing on archive newspapers, books and documents to explore ways of weaving characters from family and public history with fictional plots for historical fiction, narrative poetry and scripted dramatic dialogue.

Following the workshops there will be a public event in the New Year giving participants a chance to share some of your work live with a wider audience.

Places are limited to 10 participants so pre-booking is essential and attendance at both workshops required.
