Open Air Socially Distanced Dialogue Workshops
for WRITERS in SALISBURY and SURROUNDING REGIONS
An opportunity to write for Salisbury Fringe
Discover the hidden quirkeries surrounding Bourne Hill House: The Secret, Poesy and Herb Gardens, sculptures, ancient trees, 18th century ice house, sundial, stone memorial urn, and old city ramparts, and create a short piece that could be performed on Zoom for Sunday 4 October.
CHOICE OF THREE WORKSHOP DATES:
Thurs 27 Aug: 10.30 Thurs 27 Aug: 6.30 Sat 29 Aug: 10.30

On the day, writers will be given an extraordinary writing challenge, and we will:
- Focus on the sense of touch: texture, shape, form, weight.
- Explore the grounds, footpaths and ramparts.
- Discover characters and stories inspired by the objects in the natural surroundings.
- Have time to write in the open air.
MAX 6 WRITERS PER SESSION So we can socially distance …
