Sculpture by the Lakes

Creative Writing - 16 March 2019

Sculpture by the Lakes provides a vibrant and peaceful park setting for this creative writing course. Through a series of discussions and exercises, you will learn how to use sculptures and other art to stimulate ideas for stories, characters, situations and poems. During the day you will write a number of pieces and be given advice on how they might be extended or improved.

This course is suitable for art and nature lovers, and for anyone interested in using art as a source of inspiration. Whether you are at the start of your writing journey or further along and seeking ideas on how to expand and improve your prose or poetry, you will feel relaxed and invigorated to write. There is no need to prepare anything in advance, just come along with pen and notebook or laptop, if you prefer.

To book your place, please contact the office at Sculpture by the Lakes in person, by phone on 07720 637808, or by email at

The cost of the day is £100 and includes lunch plus tea and coffee in the morning and afternoon.
