Workshop: Overcoming Self-Doubt in Writing (10th April, 10am – 11.30am)

Self-doubt stops creativity dead in its tracks. How often have you thought: – “Someone else will write it better.” – “What’s the point? No one will read it.” – “EVERYTHING I WRITE IS TERRIBLE.” Enough. This session gives you the tools you need to challenge that negative voice and fulfil your potential as the awesome writer you are. (And you are, no matter what that voice is telling you.) Includes 1:1 feedback on a piece of work produced from the session.


The Wrong Side of the Looking Glass with Mari Ellis Dunning, Seren Poetry Festival 2021

Friday 16th April 2021, 3.15pm

In this collaborative poetry project, Natalie Ann Holborow and Mari Ellis Dunning stir together myth, legend, fairytale and iconic female characters to cast a book-length spell and bewitch, as well as beguile, the reader. With intelligence and imagination they question stereotypes, delve into archetypes, and dissect what we think we know, transmuting old stories, through gorgeous language and idiosyncratic imagery, into new and startling tales. Hosted by Parthian Editor and poet Susie Wild.
