Writing workshop held at Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral will host a creative writing workshop focusing on the difficult times we live in.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 15th October and will be run by Crave Arts and Everyman Theater Cheltenham.

This will be a one-day workshop called Writing the Wrongs and will focus on all disciplines and experiences.

The workshop draws its influence from a quote by Ursula K Le Guin who says, “Hard times are coming, where we will want the voices of writers who can see alternatives to our current way of life…and even imagine real grounds for hope.”

Led by Crave Arts co-director Steve Wilson and Everyman Theaters creative director Paul Milton and at £20pp, the day will also include a visit to the cathedral as well as work opportunities to read and play.

The workshops are also supported by divisional grant funding from Worcestershire County Council.

Steve Wilson of Crave Arts said: “I’m really looking forward to this day.

“Having the opportunity to work at the Cathedral will be truly inspiring for writers.

“You don’t need any experience to attend, and we want to work with writers from all disciplines, ages, and backgrounds.”

Paul Milton of the Everyman Theater in Cheltenham said: “The Cheltenham Everyman has a long history of working with emerging and established writers.

“We are delighted to form a new partnership with Crave Arts and at the same time expand our work in Worcestershire.

“Writing the Wrongs will be an opportunity for all of us to express how we feel for the world at this moment in history, alongside Nataliya Kudelina from Ukraine, who is currently working at Everyman Theatre.”

Daniel Parnell of Worcester Cathedral said: “We are delighted to welcome experienced creative organizations to the cathedral and hope it will be an inspiring day for new writers.

“We hope this will provide a fantastic opportunity for those who attend to develop their writing skills.”
