They say that everyone has one book in them so Rhythms of the World (ROTW) is giving budding writers a chance to perfect their prose at an upcoming creative writing workshop on Saturday 3 September.
Hosted at the British Schools Museum in Hitchin, the latest chapter of ROTW celebrations will focus on the sound of pens being put to paper as published author Sarah Leipciger shares her knowledge with aspiring wordsmiths.
Born in Peterborough, Canada, Leipciger spent her teenage years in Toronto before moving to Vancouver Island to study Creative Writing and English literature at the University of Victoria. She currently lives in London with her family, where she teaches creative writing to men in prison. Sarah recently published her first novel The Mountain Can Wait, a psychological thriller set in her native Canada.
Sarah is looking forward to the event and says “It’s always fascinating to write with a new group of people and I’m really looking forward to the workshop in Hitchin, sharing stories and ideas and expressing them in ways that are unique, edgy and inspiring”.
The creative writing workshop will start at 2pm and will cater for all ages, but under 16’s need to be accompanied by an adult. Tickets for the workshop cost £4 per adult and child, or £3 per adult. The workshop will be roughly 1 hour long, and afterwards everyone will get a chance to meet the author and get their books signed by Sarah.
To book your space for this popular event, please email [email protected] by Friday 2 September.
Proceeds raised by the workshop will contribute to securing the long term future of the Rhythms of the World charity.
