All the voices in our head: Creative Writing with Marc Nair

About the workshop:
Sometimes, the stories we have to tell need different containers to hold themselves; with a poem, perhaps, or a piece of flash fiction. It need not always be performed, but it should be shaped and honed nonetheless. In this workshop, the focus will be on creating poetry and prose from various prompts and perspectives.

A note to Kuching (budding) writers :
This is a fantastic opportunity to work with Marc and ask the questions you want to ask about writing, publishing, performing, traveling, or even about how to maintain a beard!
