Creative Writing Workshop - Captain Swing

Saturday 02 February 2019

Sat 2 Feb 2 - 4 pm

Creative Writing workshop with Beatrice Parvin, author of: ‘Captain Swing and the Blacksmith’

This workshop will enable students to create their own story plots and dialogue by combining different verse, local to Wiltshire, from the archives. We will explore the value of folk song as social history and as a window to the emotional lives of the largely illiterate rural poor. The validity of popular broadsides as source material will be discussed, as well as problems with dialect and the language used in verse.

Cost: FREE as part of HLF-funded Creative Wiltshire project but booking essential (20 places)
