In a Regency town house rich in history and atmosphere I will be running a ghost story workshop with artist and printmaker Jill Vigis this October. After a private and highly creative tour of the house, where you will be encouraged to step back in time and picture it when the lime plaster was fresh and the sound of coach horses filtered through muslin curtains, we will get to work.
And our work in the recently renovated kitchen is straightforward: to send tremors down backbones and make the hairs on the neck prickle to attention.
We will work on list poems, micro fiction, create instant books from a collage of ideas and images, and you will go away with a crammed notebook ready to write your own suspense stories and historical fiction. And did I mention there will be cake? Homemade cake made from a Regency recipe (probably).
