This intensive workshop is aimed at all, whatever their field of interest may be, who wish to improve the precision and effectiveness of their writing and at the same time gain clarity in their hearts and heads.
The workshop starts with a talk on the "Colours of Words". Participants will then do an audio warm-up, listening to poems in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. Everybody will then attempt writing down first jottings with a choice of pictorial stimuli and plenty of support. We then turn the jottings into a free-flowing paragraph or poem, ending with collaborative feedback. Enough time for further editing and refining in a conducive garden forest setting results in a writing experience that is unique and soul-uplifting.
A maximum number of 6 participants per workshop allow for an intimate writing experience. Silke offers this workshop on demand only for a minimum of 3 participants on a convenient date of your choice.
Duration 7 – 8 hours
