IMAGERY INTENSIVE adventures in 'the objective correlative' with CHARLOTTE WOOD
The power of symbols and imagery to enrich your imaginative writing is vast, but many writers lack the confidence to use them well. In this one-day workshop, award-winning novelist Charlotte Wood shows how paying attention to metaphor and simile, exploring the potential of classic archetypal symbols and creating your own 'inner objects' can lift your writing out of the ordinary, create a resonance that shimmers beyond the page and layer your work with complexity and meaning. We'll examine the different forms of imagery, look at how great writers convey meaning and find rich new strands of story through the striking use of images and objects, explore what TS Eliot meant by 'the objective correlative', and experiment with creating our own original symbols and metaphors.
Suitable for: Fiction writers of any genre and narrative non-fiction writers. Most suited to those writers at work on a substantial project, but open to all.
