Wild Writer at the Raglan Summer Arts School 2021 is designed for experienced writers as a refresher, and for beginners to kick off their process. The focus will be on intuitive and personalised creative processes. It is suitable for YA, adult, writers for children, poets, memoir writers, novelists, short story and creative non-fiction writers.
Anyone wanted to explore creative process and practices, written or spoken word, will find this program exciting and informative. Each day we will focus on a different aspect of creative practice, tapping into the intuitive imaginative brain. You will be generating ideas and written work. You’ll learn creative self-editing oriented toward discerning what’s worth salvaging – and dumping the rubbish.
