Sense-ational writing with Robyne

I’m excited to let you know that this year I will be concentrating on my writing life and among other activities will be running creative writing workshops in the Border Region for people of all ages.

My first workshops for children and teenagers, “Sense-ational writing with Robyne”,  will be held at the Sustainable Activity Centre, (SAC) Gateway Island, Lincoln Causeway next Tuesday 17 (7-11 years) and Wednesday 18 (12 – 16 years) January from 9am to 12pm. If you don’t know the centre it’s a fantastic set up that has become a hive of activity to nurture the community to practise sustainability in very accessible ways.

The workshops – ‘Sense-ational Writing with Robyne’ will take the young writers on a half hour walk around Gateway Island, and then we’ll return to the cool of the centre to write stories from that walk, and concentrate on being aware of how knowing about the five senses – touch, smell, hearing, sight and taste – can influence writing.

We’ll also explore story structure and thinking about the words that will bring the story to life.

On our return we will talk a little about story structure, finding the right words for the story they are writing, but mostly it will be a time to let imagination come to the fore and be immersed in the joy of writing.
