FREE WRITE@CHAPTER CWTCH 10.00-13 OCTOBER 28 2016

Nearly the last Friday of the Month, which means nearly time for

FREEWRITEBANNER

Meeting once a month, with no fixed agenda, poets, storytellers,spoken word performers, novellists, comedians, creators of words in whatever form, meet up to connect, chat, share experiences, successes, cautionary tales relating in any way to writing, the process, the results, the joys, the pain, the paths and the pitfalls of word the word based life

OCTOBER 28 MEETING: 10am to 1pm in The Cwtch, Chapter Arts Centre

No two Free Write sessions are the same, you may use the session to focus on getting some words down by yourself, or join the discussion, maybe a prompt will arise during the event and those who wish may try and create something on the spot. Work may be read out to willing listeners, you may learn of open mic or other occasions to try out your work publicly, something about writing generally or about your work particularly might be causing you grief and maybe someone will offer you a new perspective, deliberately, or even accidentally, via the flow of social intercourse.

As with all things creative, the trick is about getting the flow started, however that happens and flowing to wherever the flow goes.

Which is FREE WRITE in a nutshell!

FREE ENTRY, FREE TO WATCH, FREE TO TAKE PART Slots of around ten minutes

The theme is non-compulsory but hosts Steve Speakeasy and Jonathon Owens will love you all the more more if you can add something Oasis related to your normal set choices. The author of this blog will be doing something silly with an Oasis flavour and maybe an acapella cover done more respectfully. Plus, maybe, possibly, how would it sound if a swarm of bees covered an Oasis song. 

DISCLAIMER: NO BEES WILL BE HARMED OR EVEN PRESENT ON THE NIGHT

Come one, come all, COME!!!
