As part of a potential series of activities relevant to our fellowship, we are running a four-week story-telling course in September.  Whilst we think that this course is ideally suited for older people, it is open to anyone interested in learning how to tell your story.  No previous writing experience is necessary.

The course will comprise four sessions, each of two hours, on the following dates:

2-4pm Thursday 14, 21, 28 September & 12 October meeting in Room 3 of the Cross Street Centre.

Each of us has a story to tell, this course will help us to tell it better.

  • How do we set the scene to get people listening?
  • How do we select the right details to awaken their interest?
  • How do we build the tension to set them on the edge of their seats?

Come along prepared to share and to listen, as we sharpen our skills together in these interactive sessions.

Our tutor, Clare F. Hobba, a local author & Christian, has been teaching Creative Writing to Adults for eight years and has over forty publications. She was fiction reviewer for Third Way Magazine and also has a successful blog – My Moon-Shot.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  If demand is sufficient, we can consider running the same course at another time.  The cost will be £40 per person and this fee covers all four weeks and refreshments.  A concessionary rate is available on request.

For more information or to book a place on what promises to be an interesting and stimulating course, please email or call 01727 568162.
