Space to Write, Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart

Flowerfield Arts Centre 185 Coleraine Road, PORTSTEWART, Northern Ireland

Are you a writer who’d like to meet up with other writers in the Causeway Coast & Glens area and have some time out to work in a new environment? Space to Write is a free initiative through which we hope you will, literally, find the space and time to write. Flowerfield Arts Centre is offering writers a specific time that they can come together to network/meet and work on their writing in quieter spots in the centre – from the galleries to our reception café area to our ground floor corridor. Writers are invited to gather, find a comfortable space in the arts centre and write quietly for an hour, after which time we will meet in the café area for a cuppa and a chat before heading home. Please note, this isn’t a creative writing workshop. It offers space for individual writers to meet and network at a specific time each week and have some creative space. You may be a first-time or a published writer. You may be a writer working in any genre. You may like to take inspiration from the exhibitions in the galleries at Flowerfield, or to continue with a work-in-progress. There will be no exercises […]

What’s involved? Each week the group listens to a different piece, or pieces, of writing read aloud by the Group Lector. The piece might be a story or a poem though it might also be a speech, memoir or piece of narrative non-fiction. The group then discusses the piece(s) at some length to really try to get under the skin of the text: What effects does it have on us as we read? How does it achieve those effects? Guided by a Lector, the group considers the text in detail, looking at tone, choice of words, viewpoint, the effect of a certain image […]
