Guest Post: Jennifer C. Wilson on ‘Finding the Words’.

I have the pleasure of hosting Jennifer C. Wilson on the blog today. Jen, a member of Elementary  Writers, is not only a fantastic poet but her debut novel ‘Kindred Spirits: Tower of Londonwas published by Crooked Cat Publishing last year and is available as an e-book and in paperback form. 

Jen and Elaine’s workshop this coming Saturday promises to be full of fun and inspiration.

Thanks for hosting me today, Victoria!

You know I love my creative writing workshops, and this Saturday, 16th July, at Whitley Bay Library, I’m delighted to be running my first in partnership with fellow Whitley Writer, Elaine Cusack. We’ll be helping people “Find the Words”, with two workshops – a Scavenger Hunt in the morning (10:00-13:00), rummaging for ideas around Whitley Bay, and the library itself, and then in the afternoon (13:30-16:30), a session on Found Poetry.


Elaine Cusack will be co-hosting the workshop with Jen.

Whether people attend one or both sessions, there’ll be plenty of exercises to inspire, and a chance to share and draft work for group or one-to-one feedback.

Having dipped a toe in workshops last summer, with a history-inspired event at Arbeia Roman Fort, I cannot wait to run a whole-day session, and help people come up with some new ideas.

Sessions are £20 each, or £30 for the whole day (10:00-16:30), and tickets are available online now. You can get more information about this event on Facebook

Elaine and I cannot wait!
