Overview

Bring your imagination, pen and paper!
We will explore identity through mythology and other writings in this workshop series. By introducing the myth of Pandora with references to Celtic mythology, we will consider writing related to the theme of identity and place and respond in a series of brief writing activities.
Jamaica focus.
These writing workshops will encourage understanding about the links between Wales and the Caribbean and our shared histories of colonialization and oppression. The tutor has been working with professional specialists in community stress in both Jamaica and in North West Wales, and we have started to develop a way using poetry and writing that enables people to find safe ways to talk through the tensions and memories, in this case by bringing them into the context of the abuse of power involved in the Slave Trade, as the historical link between North West Wales and Jamaica is particularly strong,
The establishment of these workshops and the publication of an online anthology will support us to progress our community cohesion work.

Content

These workshops aim to offer a safe space for participants to explore their own feelings in response to a piece of poetry, prose, music or images. Participants can do so by creating their own writing as part of this response. The sessions will be run in English, but creative responses to the stimuli welcome in Welsh.

Introduction: Writing the self and mythology
Journeying into Children’s Literature
Autobiographical writing
Travel writing
Writing, Ethics and Voice
Diary writing: readings and a sense of place.
