Join poet and playwright George Gunn on your personal creative journey from the poem, through the short story to the formal destination of the stage play.
In these 16 workshops we will look at how poetry generates story.
From that beginning you will explore the requirements of short narrative fiction. From the short story, you will move on to the demands of public storytelling which is the business of the theatre.
Ravenskald is a new venture. The group will develop creativity through interaction, constructive criticism and mutual support.
All you need is the desire to dream, to create, to write.

Thursday 16th March at 7.30pm in Mackay's Hotel, Wick Just which uncharted waters is the Pictish naval commander steering his vessel into now? Well, seeing is believing - isn't it? In his autobiography, Time Bends, playwright Arthur Miller describes the vivid impression left on his six year-old mind when he saw his first 'movie', an open-air affair screened against a sheet in a make-shift theatre on the roof of the apartment block his Jewish family shared in Harlem, New York, around 1920. Miller is fascinated by the story flickering in front of him - and totally bewildered when the 'people' disappear: Now the light went out - the whole thing had lasted only ten minutes or so - and I asked my father where these people were'.
