Searching for dinosaurs and Wheelbarrows in the Triggering Town


This talk looks at symbiotic relationship of teaching and writing in the classroom. In 2017, I signed up for a Masters in Creative Writing. The experience of having my own work and study critiqued and fed back to me, while still teaching English at a secondary school to 14 to 18 year olds, opened up some interesting areas of creative growth, which I would like to share with interested audiences. Alan Ziegler, writer lecturer at Columbia University, speaks about the study of writing being about “people around a table”. This talk explores this fertile area in greater detail.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
