The Runaway Nose and Other Magically Real Adventures

This course is full but sometimes we do have people that drop out or we run a second course if there is enough demand. It is definitely worth putting your name on the wait list as we offer places to wait listed children very often. Send your name and details to Patricia Morse and we will add your name to the waiting list.


Anything can happen in a magical realist story; your nose could even run away and start a life of its own... This class is a chance to make the impossible happen, and then some more impossible things happen, through writing. Learn a little about magical realism, and then experiment with some magically real writing of your own.
