The course comprises:

  • 10 x weekly one-hour online creative writing workshops (Oct-Dec) delivered by a number of workshop tutors
  • 1 x online music workshop delivered by musician Rachel Ireland to transform work into a piece to be performed by a local choir (January 2021)
  • 1 x Spoken Word Performance workshop delivered by Michelle Scally Clarke (late Feb or early March, in person, Covid restrictions permitting)

Plus the additional option of either performing or seeing your work performed as a spoken word piece or sung by the Holmfirth Soul Choir (or another local choir) at a special Festival event at the end of March (date tbc).
