What To Expect On This Writing Workshop
Our Stay Home workshops are based on our live Zoom Stay Home Sundays, with the added benefit of being able to start them immediately and then enjoy them in your own time, at your own pace. They take about three to four hours, with breaks, and include time for you to write with guided exercises based on the workshop theme.
The 8 character archetypes we explore in this workshop were defined by Joseph Campbell in The Hero With a Thousand Faces (Pantheon Books 1949). We will look at the roles of the hero, the mentor, friends and allies, the shadow, the herald, the trickster, the shape shifter and the threshold guardian. All you need is your laptop, a notebook and pen, a quiet room and some undisturbed time to yourself. Our expert tutors Kath Morgan and Jane Moss will provide the rest.
You can enjoy the workshop in the comfort of your own home or take your laptop to a favourite place, somewhere peaceful where you won't be disturbed. It doesn't matter where you are as long you have access to WIFI and can focus on the work at hand.
