Critical Writing & Creative Non Fiction

Tutor: Dorothy Max Prior
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next date: Wednesday 1 May 2019

What are critics for? What constitutes constructive criticism and helpful feedback? How can criticism feed and support the development of an artform? How can we develop our own writing skills? These and other questions will be addressed in this practical workshop for critics (or would-be critics), bloggers, and writers of creative non-fiction, who are invited to come together to explore the role of arts journalism and criticism in contemporary culture. Over the course of the Brighton Festival and Fringe 2019, workshop participants will get out and about seeing theatre, performance, art and music; meet up to share experiences and muse on issues raised; write their own reviews and features; receive professional editing support; explore examples of good critical writing and inventive journalism; and enjoy a number of creative writing exercises drawn from a variety of sources that will help to move your writing skills up a notch or two.
