A free writing workshop facilitated by Rosie Garland, suitable for new and experienced writers who want to get their creative caffeine flowing. There'll be time for discussion as well as exercises to stimulate writing.
Rosie will also talk about how she wrote her Victorian era debut novel, The Palace of Curiosities, as well as leading participants through a series of practical workshops to generate new writing.
Born in London to a runaway teenager, Rosie has always been a cuckoo in the nest. She is an eclectic writer and performer, ranging from singing in cult gothic band The March Violets, to twisted alter-ego Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen. She has five solo collections of poetry and is winner of the DaDa Award for Performance Artist of the Year and a Poetry Award from the People's Café, New York. Her novel 'The Palace of Curiosities' has just been published by HarperCollins.
"The Palace of Curiosities is a jewel-box of a novel, with page after page, scene after scene, layer after layer of treats and surprises. Garland is a real literary talent: definitely an author to watch." Sarah Waters
