Inspiration Day

Creative Writing at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery

Saturday 16th June 2012  11am-4pm  £8

In need of inspiration? Let the museum’s collection spark ideas for you. What stories can you imagine behind an old Punch and Judy booth, wedding dolls from the 1800s, and intricate Victorian valentine cards? From Innuit artefacts (including a walrus gut parka!) to one of the earliest televisions, Baird’s ‘televisor’ from the 1930s, the collection spans continents and eras, and features lots of Hastings history.

The day will provide plenty of time for writing, and I’ll be on hand to guide you and discuss ideas individually. We’ll spend some time working beneath the carved wooden panels and stained glass of the stunning Durbar Hall and wandering the exhibits together.

This day is intended to provide you with some space away from it all in an inspiring setting, and is suitable for writers at any level of experience working in any genre. Tea and coffee will be provided, please bring lunch.

Places are limited so please book in advance by emailing me at
