And just in case you’re wondering – Larunda was a naiad nymph In Ovid’s Fasti (a six book Latin poem he wrote over 2,000 years ago)).

Re Write Your Story
We each have core narratives we carry within us, stories that trace the arc of our lives and define who we are. But what if we’re more than the combined total of our collected stories? And what if we could rewrite the stories which brought us here, and then use those stories to cast a richer future?
This short course of six workshops will focus on both the fundamentals of creative writing and power of internalised stories. Participants will learn how to use the stories of their own lives as the basis from which to shape credible characters, build tension, and develop narrative arcs that are captivating and transformative. They will also learn how to edit and polish their work, using the drafting process to build skills, confidence, and resilience. These workshops will focus on the joy of writing and the power of stories.
