WHAT IF… CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
14 August 2021, 4pm - 6pm
New Art Exchange
Nottingham-based poet and writer Ioney Smallhorne leads a creative writing workshop on speculative fiction and magic realism. Here are some words from Ioney:
'What if'.... such a simple question but also a liberating one for the writer. Re-imagine the past, the present, the future, go on, I dare you! Let's go there, where ever your 'there' is and see, hear, smell, taste and touch your imagined world.
This writing workshop orbits around the odd, explores speculative fiction/magic realism genres, infuses reading, writing, discussion and draws inspiration from Arit Emannuela Etukudo's multi-disciplinary exhibition The Christening.
Ioney Smallhorne earned a MA in Creative Writing/Education, Goldsmiths University 2019. Co-lead faciltator for Gobs Poetry collective.
