Your Own Writer’s Space: Creative Writing for Adults with Mac Dunlop

Creative Writing for Adults - Mac Dunlop

 Your very own Writer’s Space
12th June 2017, Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Location: The Writers’ Block


Mac Dunlop, is the founder of The Poetry Point, a writer for radio and author of the recent small collection “Solarium“.
Mac will be working with you in the Writers’ Block on recognising and working with your own ‘writing space’. Writing is both fun and a discipline, and finding the inner place you write from can be just as important as the right pen, a comfy chair or a quiet place. In an ideal world your writing space would be like an internal suitcase that you can unpack and set up anywhere. But then, who lives in an ideal world?

This workshop will go through some writing techniques and exercises to help with focusing on developing your internal writing space, and from there your way of seeing.
We’ll start with one of the most well known poems from the 20th century, The Red Wheelbarrow, by William Carlos Williams and we’ll find time to read and discuss your own writing and inspiration during the workshop too.
Places are limited and cost £20, which includes light refreshments. To book email

Mac is an experienced workshop facilitator in Poetry, Performance, Visual Arts and Filmmaking.  He works with KEAP in Cornwall, delivering writing workshops with The Story Republic project in schools, and continues to edit The Poetry Point a website showcase of poetry and spoken word in the SW.

His most recent publication Solarium published by The Poetry Point Press was inspired by Mac’s time as writer in residence at Trelissick House. During the autumn of 2016 and as part of The Story Republic’s “A Place to Write” project, Mac spent a day a week inside the house, writing, reading and talking to visitors. The aim of the overall project was to encourage visitors to find inspiration and their own creativity in the house, gardens and history of the place.

As a cartoonist, he recently won a Pluto Press award, and his latest one man show “Small Worlds” is an interweaving of satirical allegories and intimate thoughts about the little futures in which we aspire to be. His latest collection of over 100 box cartoons, “Cod Philosophy” is available online here
