Words hold power. They can create, destroy, transport, inspire. But you have to know how to use them. Transposing thoughts to paper is no easy feat, but luckily, Townshippers’ Association will be starting up a new writing workshop, which will help budding writers tap into their inner Hemmingway. The two-year project is being launched after last year’s success with “Our Stories”. Townshippers’ Association discovered, after a poll, that literary events qualified in the top three most requested activities by locals. Jan Draper, along with Etienne Domingue and Melanie Cutting, have organized the brand-new Write here, Write now! workshop. The project, according to Draper, will host workshops which will feature writing tips, activities exploring genre and theme, and even reading techniques. Write here, Write now! will also be dedicated to creating “a sustainable support system for creative writers”, and will train those interested to give workshops of their own.
