Write at the Museum 2!

Write at the Museum was a series of four monthly workshops at the Museum of Childhood.

Six writers joined us for afternoons of creativity in the tranquil (some might say eerie!) space of the closed museum. They were free to roam the galleries and work in any space which suited them, and much of the work produced was indeed inspired by the material culture of childhood.

“The Evergreen Chain is a magazine
Of far & wide renown.
The writers are, some of them, not thirteen,
And the head of it all is lovely “Miss Brown.”
“It goes on its round each month in the year,
The addresses are given inside,
The rules are not strictly kept, I fear,
Which the Editor made as a General Guide.”
“Towards the end of the month come letter, with curses,
From the justly impatient “Miss Brown”:-
“Oh, where are your drawings, your stories & verses?

We’re starting an exciting new writing group at the Museum of Childhood. It will be a small group of up to ten writers. All levels of experience welcome, and types of writing.
Our galleries might inspire new pieces of poetry, prose or memoir, or perhaps give new energy to works in progress.

Enjoy exclusive access while the museum is closed to the public, and write among the wonderful displays. Discuss your work over a cup of tea with the friendly group and get advice from the experienced tutor.

To start, we are offering a four week course over the Autumn and Winter with professional writer Regi Claire, for £80.

Tuesday afternoons, 2.30-4.30pm.
