Creative Writing Workshop for Dyslexia Writers

RASP
RASP in association with the University of Roehampton will be running a creative writing workshop. The aim is to share techniques, ideas and thoughts with a view to explore creativity, focusing on writing as a practice.

The workshops will be run by senior lecturer in creative writing, Louise Tondeur, and Katie Boxall, a PhD student researching dyslexia. It will be suited those who already have a writing project or idea in mind, but would like some feedback about how to progress. We will explore many aspects of the writing process including: generating ideas, plot development, spaces to write, writing techniques, and editing. Hopefully, leaving some time aside for sharing thoughts on what it means to be a dyslexic writer.

3:00 pm - 4.00 pm
