Bookmark Festival - A toast to Burgess Writing Workshop
Thu, April 27, 2017, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM BST
Are you the kind of droog whose creative writing needs a kick-start? This special workshop marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Anthony Burgess, the Manchester author and one of the leading novelists of the twentieth century. Expect exercises, techniques and inspiration with a distinctly Burgessian feel in honour of the linguist who gave us 33 novels, two dozen non-fiction works and, in Clockwork Orange, an entirely made-up language. Bring something to write on (paper or digital is fine).
Beginners and non-Burgess fans welcome. The session will be led by writer and journalist Fat Roland.
