Everybody has a story to tell. What’s yours?
Writing on the Wall invites you to participate in What’s Your Story? a creative writing initiative which aims to uncover new stories from unheard voices.
What’s Your Story? will be led by WoW’s writer in residence Paula Currie who will guide participants through the creative process: from gathering ideas to completing a first draft.
The course will provide participants with the opportunity to explore different forms of storytelling including; short story, poetry, screenwriting and spoken word.
What’s Your Story? is open to all sections of the community throughout the Merseyside area. What’s Your Story? offers people the chance to tell their stories and will provide aspiring writers with the opportunity of developing their work in a supportive, creative environment.
Sessions will be held weekly, in a supportive group setting. Participants will read a variety of stories and discuss them, and will then be encouraged to write their own stories.
Work generated by the group will be posted on the Writing on the Wall website and will also be displayed in a public setting. At the end of the course we plan to host a What’s Your Story? celebration evening. This will provide participants with the opportunity of reading their work out in front of an invited audience.
