"Spring is the time of plans and projects." (Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina)
Do you have the seed of an idea that's been looking to see the light of day for some time? Or perhaps the New Year has brought you some new inspiration? Bring your first thoughts along to the Lapidus London meeting on the first Saturday of March. We'll offer some writing prompts to help fire up your imagination about new individual or group writing projects you might want to kickstart this spring. Then we'll introduce some journaling tools and exercises to help you turn them into reality, along with the opportunity to ask for feedback from a ready-made focus group of your peers.
St John's Church Waterloo, 73 Waterloo Road London SE1 8TY
Doors open: 12.45pm Workshop and meeting: 1pm-3.30pm

"If the paintings could talk" (Michael Wilson) ** National Gallery Visit **
A fun and inspiring workshop on ekphrastic* writing to celebrate the 200th anniversary of London's National Gallery. We'll meet at the Gallery, look at some selected art works together, look at some inspiring examples of ekphrastic writing, and then see what the paintings might say to us if they were able to talk to us individually - working some prompts from Michael Wilson's fascinating book: https://shop.nationalgallery.org.uk/if-the-paintings-could-talk-pb-1018524.html
Timings to be confirmed.
* Ekphrastic poetry has come to be defined as poems written about works of art; however, in ancient. Greece, the term ekphrasis was applied to the skill of describing a thing with vivid detail.
