About the event

Adding a deeper sense of place to writing can bring new life to your writing, whether you work with poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction or spoken word. In this workshop we’ll look at opening up ‘place’ in your writing using ideas that can deepen your work or simply beat writer’s block, with strategies gleaned from nature writing, psychogeography, contemporary art and more.

Writing the Landscape at Manningtree Arts will include ways of rearranging your view of place, as well as writing prompts, games and tactics that will help bring the places you (or your characters) know – real or imagined – into the light of your texts.

Bring a pen and notepad.

Workshop leader Justin Hopper is a writer whose work explores the intersection of landscape, memory and myth. His projects include books (The Old Weird Albion, Obsolete Spells), spoken-word albums for the Ghost Box Records label and many other media. He has taught landscape writing at venues from Tate Britain to Essex Book festival and many others.
