SAWC SEMINAR (article first published : 2003-10-18)

The South African Writer’s Circle is to host all-day seminar in October.

This is to take place in the Westville Library on October 11 from 09h00 to 15h30.

Well known for her right brain writing seminars, Felicity Keat from Umzini Press will conduct a presentation and workshop entitled Unlock Your Creativity. She will focus on character, setting and atmosphere, encouraging the writers to use all their senses.

Dee Pratt, lecturer in creative writing from Durban Institute of Technology ,will conduct a presentation and workshop entitled My writing, my dreams, my self: writing as intra-psychic communication made public. She will encourage writers to do exercises based upon vivid or lucid dreams, maintaining that a good novel or poem does what dreams do - communicates superbly at a number of layers and levels using "immediate reality language" - images and symbols taken from life experience. “The main differences are that dreams are private and writing is (usually) public. In dreams you have to crack the code to understand the meaning - novels and poems can't be quite so obscure!” she says.

Entrance fee R20 (R10 members). Please take along a plate of eats to share at lunchtime. More details from Brian Duckitt on 031 765-5706.
