Text Box: Fiona Linday Welcomes you to:

The Show of Interest Meeting -Writing for an Anthology- Sunday April 15th, 2.30-4.30
As an Attenborough Arts Centre learner, you were invited to find out more about our Fiction Anthology Project. A few came along to hear the call out for new writing for the Family Matters book. Fiona is leading a year’s collaboration to create and showcase an anthology with Attenborough Arts Centre learners, where she is a freelance practitioner. Thanks to the Attenborough Arts, Arts Council England, Dahlia Publishing & Renaissance One she will elicit learners’ short fiction, then she’ll challenge learners to write to their next level. Following a call out, some workshops and activities/email support, she'll raise aspirations of new writers. Learners will be encouraged to follow Dahlia Publishing submission guidelines and publisher rules, to draft work towards ‘Family Matters.’ Practising self-editing techniques they’ll develop skills to improve stories or poetry. Having revised their draft work, learners receive positive publishing opportunity and a free performance workshop from Renaissance One. Contributors will read extracts of their work at showcasing events and a book launch to champion successful narrative voices. The book will be published before March 2019. Optional creative writing workshops begin in April, on 17th & 24th from 10.30-12.30. Then workshops continue in May on the 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th, on June 25th & in July on the 3rd, 10th & 16th. - Just turn up, £6 (£5 concessions) on the door. Free showcasing events follow for contributors to engage in before the New Year.
