Unlock Creativity and Improve Your Writing Skills At a Saturday Workshop
Adult and teen aspiring authors (and amateur writers) can enjoy some literary fun with Creative Saturday, a creative writing workshop, at Casa Labia in Muizenberg on 1 June 2019. The Saturday morning workshop is hosted by All About Writing. Experienced writers are also welcome to attend to augment their skills and improve their writing.
ALL ABOUT WRITING AND YOUR WORKSHOP FACILITATOR
All About Writing runs creative writing courses, retreats and mentoring programmes in South Africa and abroad. AAW consists of a partnership between Dr Jo-Anne Richards, Trish Urquhart and Richard Beynon. Richards took early retirement four years ago from Wits University and moved back to Cape Town, where she had launched her career.
A much-loved local trainer had fallen ill and was no longer able to run the popular creative workshops. “She asked if I’d be prepared to fill this gap, saying local writers would welcome a fun Saturday morning where they would feel safe to explore their creativity,” muses Dr Richards.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The workshop kicks off at 9am with creative, loosening-up free-writing exercises followed by breakfast. After breakfast, the group discusses aspects of writing. Richards then provides the participants with writing prompts and they spend 30 minutes writing. The writing prompts involve a very specific scenario for which participants need to write a scene that will highlight aspects of the writing practice that was discussed beforehand. Richards offers every person (who wants it) constructive feedback and advice on their writing in a kind and supportive way, in line with the motto of All About Writing: Honest but kind.
A breakfast consisting of tea, coffee and muesli or scrambled eggs will be served.

The event takes place at Casa Labia in Muizenberg. The extraordinary venue, with its historic rooms, moulded ceilings, works of art and view of the sea is sure to inspire your creative process. There’s plenty of parking on Main Road in Muizenberg outside the venue.
