The Cedar Tree Creative Writing

The Cedar Tree Writers

This is a friendly, encouraging group that meet once a month at The Cedar Tree.  We have a ‘cuppa’ and chat.. sometimes even a biscuit or two and sit back to listen and read out works we have prepared from a choice of prompts, given at each meeting.

There are no set rules to the piece, we have short stories, fiction, non fiction, poetry… these can take anything from a minute to 15 minutes or so to read. Sometimes we may read from work previously written…sometimes we may just come to listen to the delights in store!

We usually meet on the second Monday of the month at The Cedar Tree 7.45pm. We give a donation of £3 which includes tea (and sometimes a biscuit!) with proceeds to the Blandford Literary Festival.

Please contact us to let us know your coming, and get the prompts! Unless of course you would just like to come along and listen to begin with!

Creative Writing Retreats

Your retreat day will begin with connection to your writing through visualisations and inspirational objects and themes. Simple, fun writing exercises will get the words moving from your head onto the page , with an opportunity to share and discuss, if you choose.

Following a scrumptious lunch we will once more put pen to paper and immerse ourselves in the beauty and joy  of our written word. Once again with an opportunity to share at the end,  over a ‘cuppa and a biscuit’

A perfectly wonderful day, suitable for anyone that has never written their word…may want to write…does write… The Cedar Tree has a magical quality that will leave you feeling inspired and happy.

Workshops

Your workshop will begin with connection to your writing through visualisations and inspirational objects and themes. Simple, fun writing exercises will get the words moving from your head onto the page , with an opportunity to share and discuss, if you choose.

The Cedar Tree has a wonderfully creative ambience, leave self doubt at the door, step into your creative self and find your essence. These workshops can be beautiful introduction to your writing, or perhaps a refreshing look at how you write…or just a lovely way to spend two hours meeting with friends, making friends and having a pleasurable morning.
