Wartime Stories – pictures into words

To Dress Extravagantly Is Bad Form

I am giving two writing workshops at the Imperial War Museum, on 8 July 2012, as part of a special day of events and talks. My sessions are geared towards helping people who take part to draft  a short ‘day in the life’-style piece of writing set during the first  or second world war, taking as our inspiration the exhibits and artwork from the Imperial War Museum. I’m expecting some participants may focus on those who stayed at home, but stories from the front line are not ruled out. The sessions are being run by The Open University and the Imperial War Museum, and are free to attend; online booking is required.

There are morning and afternoon sessions of the “Wartime Stories – pictures into words” session. Be great to see you there if you’re free – if not, do pass on to friends who might be interested. Nothing much needed, just show up with your favoured writing equipment be it biro and paper, laptop, or some other gizmo. Even a fountain pen will do!

info about the day (which includes a wide variety of talks) on the Imperial War Museum website  The day is open to all; you do not have to be an existing Open University student to attend.
