Creative Writing Break – ‘Inside and Outside'(Fully Booked)

September 19, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - September 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am

A Creative Writing break on the theme of ‘Inside and Outside’ no writing experience necessary, only a willingness to have a go.

Tuesday 19th September12pm – Friday 22nd September 10am

led by Chris Leonard

Take time in beautiful Ashburnham, writing both indoors and outside in its extensive grounds (weather permitting!) Because our creative God is present, each of these breaks turns out differently and far more happens than our writing. They provide a safe space to grow in confidence, both in writing and as a person.

We’re very inclusive and welcome people with no writing experience and with plenty; your level of belief, education and language don’t matter either. These aren’t writing courses. The only commitment is to write at least one sentence a day and then to share it. We provide plenty of inspiration through pictures, words, music and worship. We laugh, relax, listen, are heard and often make new friends.

‘Inside and Outside’ are our themes for 2023. They’ll spark writing ideas such as ‘What’s locked up inside?’ ‘Who’s kept out in the cold?’ You might view characters from the outside or the inside and set them in a restricted space’s intensity or the freedom of the great outdoors!

Chris Leonard has published 21 books and has led many creative writing breaks and workshops at Ashburnham and elsewhere ever since 2001. In recent years, inspiring Celtic musicians and worship-leaders Nigel and Julie Cameron have added their amazing gifting’s.
