This Roundhouse Roundtable digital discussion is open to any person aged 18-25.

Join poet, playwright, novelist and creative writing teacher Cecilia Knapp for 90 minutes of zero pressure, bite size accessible creative writing fun.

There’s so much pressure to get creative and be productive during our time in lockdown. It can be hard if you don’t know where to start, or if you’ve lost the community you used to rely on for creative inspiration.

During the session we’ll embark on a series of quick fire creative prompts that are easy to do from home, taking inspiration from our surroundings. We’ll take part in exercises that will allow our minds to travel beyond our four walls too. We’ll look at some cracking poems for inspiration and get to know a bunch of other creative minded people.

Everyone should leave with some exercises they can use beyond the session and ideas for embedding creativity into their day to day life in a manageable way. You’ll each write a brand new poem and hopefully, you’ll meet some new writer pals. It doesn’t matter if you’re a published poet or you’ve never written a single word, this Roundtable is about trying new approaches to writing and is open to everyone.

Sign up via the form below and you will be sent a link to access the Zoom workshop.
