THE STORIES OF STROUD IN 10 OBJECTS, Writers’ Workshop
Join us for a morning of fun and exploration selecting objects that inspire us to write new stories and poems from displays at Museum in the Park. Led by JLM Morton, this playful writing workshop will go hunting for the truth, lies, anecdotes, official and unofficial histories that linger in the collection of Roman skulls, dinosaur bones, coins, textiles, paintings, taxidermy, rocks, farm machinery and much, much more! By the end of the workshop, you’ll have gathered (at least) 10 objects and the beginnings of new work that tell your story of Stroud.
Suitable for writers working at any level in any form, from beginners to more experienced writers looking for some fresh inspiration. Sense of adventure essential.
JLM Morton’s pamphlets Lake 32 and Sentient are published by Yew Tree Press. This year Juliette was awarded an Arts Council grant to work on a collection exploring the role of trade cloth in colonial expansion. She is poet in residence for Stroudwater Textile Trust. www.jlmmorton.com
