LONG COURSES FOR OUR TIMES

Amidst all the uncertainty that lies ahead, we know one thing for certain: keeping our creativity alive and energised will equip us to face whatever comes our way with resilience and grace. We’ve been hard at work devising a programme of courses that we believe will open minds and hearts while at the same time supporting a creative writing practice. Each course offers a different approach and entry point into life writing that will help you express your life experiences in a fresh, enlivened way.  Investing in our creativity is soulful self-care that’s never been more necessary for our well-being and mental health.

DATES: 14 – 17 November

SCHEDULE: Arrive Monday 13th, course runs from 9am – 5pm daily on Tuesday 14th, Wed 15th and Thurs 16th.  Depart in the morning of Friday 17th. 

VENUE: Beaverlac Cob House (for writing course only – you will be staying in other Beaverlac accommodation)

FEE: R5000 (inclusive of course fees and teas, snacks, vegetarian lunches and dinners but not Monday dinner or daily breakfasts. Excludes accommodation.)

FACILITATOR: Dawn Garisch

Remember that all course participants are invited to join our monthly Follow Up Groups (FUGS) where you can continue to hone your writing skills with the support of other like-minded writers.

We don’t know what’s going to happen next, how world events will unfold. We can only be with the present moment because its almost impossible to plan anything too far into the future. The course programme above is an intentional activation of hope and creativity even in the face of uncertainty.

Please join us!

Love

And the LRC EXCO team
