Old into New, with Maria McCann…

Suitable for families, individuals, and ramblers alike, this course will focus on mining traditional material (folktale, fairytale, myth) to produce something contemporary.  Writers will climb the stunning Glastonbury Tor, taking in the breathtaking scenes over Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales. The walk itself is set to last one hour, including a series of writing exercises for engagement, before heading to the George and Pilgrim Inn for some delicious lunch & refreshments.

What follows is, at the moment, a surprise. But if you like the sound of this already please contact us to reserve a place.

You will need…

…a folk story, fairytale or myth to use as your raw material, comfortable shoes for climbing, and a warm jumper or similar for the top of the Tor (it can be very windy up there).  NB myth lovers welcome, but you definitely don’t have to be one.  This isn’t a spiritual workshop, it’s all about shaping and crafting raw material.
