The Open Wall

creative writing workshop,
Cassidy's on Westmoreland street,
July 30th @ 7.30pm.

The Open Wall

Spoken word begs for an audience to receive and participate in it, and with a good performer, the result can be wonderful.

The written word, however, is a solitary being. It is silently digested, there is no direct interaction with the author, and the voice is imagined.

While most writers workshops offer writers the floor after exercises so that they can read pieces aloud, writing intended for the page loses something essential.

The Open Wall is a creative writing workshop which offers a forum for writing and sharing words bound in ink. After each exercise participants are invited to stick any work they are happy to share onto 'The Wall'.

'The Wall', a simple notice board with simple pins, is a medium for presenting work to others, and it is open to everybody.

The Open Wall begins it’s creative writing workshops tomorrow night in Cassidy's on Westmorland Street.

Wednesday the 30th of July, at 7.30pm.

Workshops will take place every second Wednesday at 7:30pm, i.e. August 13th, August 27th…
