Storyslam Retreat & Social
March 4 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Story Slam from 3pm:
Writers will be given a prompt and asked to write a story, using that prompt in some way, in no more than 1250 words. Stories can be in any format including script format. Writers will be given 3 and a half hours to write their story, with full support should it be required. Stories will then be added to a USB drive and printed (anonymously) to be stuck on the wall in the event space. Entries will be ‘Judged’ by the attendees of the social.
Writers are encouraged to attend the story writing retreat even if they eventually opt not to submit their story for judging (although we hope everyone will).
Entry is free on this occasion and open to all. The only other rule is that you must not tell anyone which story is yours until the results are announced.
Prizes are still to be determined, but will include money off vouchers for NWS courses, wine and chocolates as well as bragging rights!
Social from 7pm:
We have a special treat lined up for the evening social. Abi Moore will be bringing her guitar and performing an exclusive live gig for us. Abi is currently working on her 4th studio album. She performs all over the country in between running various choirs and writing new music. Copies of Abi’s back catalogue will be available for sale on the night. Abi will be performing for approximately 30 minutes from around 7:15pm.
The social is open to all NWS members and guests. Each attendee will be given a token on arrival which we would like them to place in a box beneath their favourite story submission. The winning story will be the one with the most tokens by the end of the night. Winners will be announced just before 9:30am.
This event is free, but please RSVP to Holly via firstname.lastname@example.org
