CREATIVE WRITING SEMINAR (article first published : 2006-04-10)

Get away from the madding crowd and get in touch with your creative side.

The South African Writers' Circle seminar to be held in May launches the South African Writers' Circle Publishing's first book.

The annual writing seminar will be held at the Mountain Park Hotel in Bulwer, KwaZulu-Natal, where mind, body and soul will be exercised through the writing workshops and the other senses will be explored through walks in the countryside, looking at art, communicating with like-minded people – all aimed to stimulate the imagination and create stories.

The theme this year is “Then and Now” - and the seminar takes a look at modernising writing while learning from the old masters.

Guest speakers include Michael Brunner, Gunda Brunner and Dr Tod Collins. Michael Brunner of Isidingo fame will discuss writing dialogue and how Isidingo came alive. Gunda Brunner will unravel the mystique of self-publishing, which was, for her, a good experience and Dr Tod Collins - winner of the Africa section of the BBC Commonwealth Short Story Competition – will share the benefits of his experiences.

The seminar takes place from May 19 to 21. Fees R250 (R150 for SAWC members) plus accommodation on full board basis: R280 p.p.p.n. for one day (R260 p.p.p.n. for two days)
