Writing dreams forces us to abandon the rules—to see the potential in the real, the magic in the mundane, the metaphorical in the literal. The world of dream is rich in symbol and myth. Dreams can inform and baffle us in equal measure. And they can also affect our writing.
In this one-off workshop, we will explore creative writing through the lens of this fantasy otherworld. We will cover exercises dealing with metaphor to encourage participants to envision everything they write as a dream sequence.
It can be scary as a writer to jump into metaphor if you’re new to it. This workshop will give you the tools to tease poetic language and imagery from your prose.
