Writing in the Wardrobe

A creative writing course exploring clothes, real and imagined. Come and write about threads, duds, rags and feathers!

Course Details:
This course takes place at 18.00 – 20.00 on Thursday evenings.
There are 3 sessions on the following dates:
11th, 18th and 25th January 2024.

Step into the magical world of wardrobes and come and write about clothes. Wardrobes are full of memories – of people, places and events. Clothes you love, and clothes you no longer wear but can’t let go of.

Our own clothes often remind us of all the people we used to be – our younger selves. What do your clothes say about you? What meaning do they hold for you? Perhaps there are some you’ve parted with but wish you hadn’t.

Clothes can say so much about a character. Describing someone’s outfit in a story or poem – the tailored cut of a jacket, the turn of a cuff, fancy buttons – little details can bring them to life.

Join Judi Sissons in The Writing Space for 3 weekly workshops delving into the world of clothing and fashion. We will write about clothes, our own and other people’s, real and imagined.

There will be stimulating activities and creative prompts to get you writing. We will work individually and collaboratively with some time in small breakout groups. Sharing is encouraged but there is no pressure to share your personal writing. Open to writers at all stages including beginners.
