Jewish Book Week

March might seem like a long way ahead but if you're interested in the Jewish Book Week workshops run by the London literary organisation Spread the Word it is probably best to book early.
The Afternoon Play
Tuesday 1 March
A scriptwriting workshop with playwright Nina Rapi.
Learn and play around with the basic principles of writing for performance. By the end of the afternoon you should have the very rough first draft of a short play!

Find Your Voice
Wednesday 2 March
Find your poetic voice in this practical writing workshop with poet Malika Booker.
Memories are essential ingredients for constructing poems. Explore the power of stories and how objects can reveal unexpected gems about our lives. Bring an object that means a lot to you. Come prepared to find your poetic voice.

A Story by Bedtime
Thursday 3 March
Writing bedtime stories with novelist Shaun Levin.
Explore some of the elements of a good story to enable you to write a bedtime story to read to loved ones later in the day (or even for their afternoon schloff) - drama, tension, adventure, goodies, baddies and a happy end.
