Is it only writers who get excited about having a workshop in a library? Maybe it is.
I popped in the library the other day to see if I could use it as a free venue for the Wednesday Write Your Life Story workshops. Talk about amazing timing! The head librarian was the working out a program for 10th January for the library's 50th anniversary celebrations. She asked me if I would be willing to run an hour long workshop around writing. Of course, being someone who isn't so great at saying No, but also who could see this as a fun opportunity, I said Yes.
So on Thursday 10th January between 2-3 pm I am going to be asking people to put their thoughts on the library in verse. My plan is to get lots of smaller verses, haikus, one lines, etc and then take them away and compose a "Town Library Poem" that can be displayed in the library - along with Barefoot At The Kitchen Table information.
I must say as well as it being a great opportunity for me it is also a great way of me to give back to not just the town but the library which I think is awesome :)
