We want to offer lots of
interesting and unnusual workshops at our Festival this year. Could you
run a 90 minute workshop for us on any aspect of creative writing,
performance, poetry, prose, character bulding, description, publishing,
running a community group, music, meditation, movement, inspiring
others, art, creativity - we welcome ALL offers and suggestions from
everyone - regardless of whether they have run a workshop for TheFED
before or not!
Dave Chambers is coordinating the workshop programme and welcomes anyone
to get in touch with offers and ideas. For more information please
