FWS Short Story Workshop

OlgasWorkshop5-19

Our Federation Scriever, Olga Wojtas, visited Dundee Central Library on 3 May. Her short story workshop was attended by folk from Aberdeen,Tayport, Newburgh, Arbroath, Forfar, Edinburgh, Livingston and Dundee.
She started off with relaxation exercises, then got everyone to do a freewrite, writing whatever came into their heads for three minutes without lifting their pens from the paper! They then chose a few words from that to share with the group, and then everyone chose three or four words from other people, and haf9 to write something incorporating all the words. The most popular being ‘skedaddle’!
The group then shared some memories and were challenged to write them from a different perspective.
All in all an inspiring day.
