What Could a Creative Writing Workshop add to your event
I’ve been to many events and conferences where towards the end I’ve felt overwhelmed by the buzz of networking and the amount of information being given to me! It would be nice to take a bit of time out without losing out on anything.
A creative writing workshop can offer an oasis of calm at a busy event. A good writing workshop allows some quiet time for participants to sit and think (and write) without distraction. This can allow people to catch their breath.
A writing workshop can also improve participation in the event:
- thinking about a topic and preparing to write about it means you will reflect on your experience of the conference and what you’ve learnt.
- writing about a topic can help organise your thoughts
- sharing your writing with other members of the workshop can make you more confident to participate more fully in the event as a whole.
