Capture the Scene workshop at Arnos Vale Cemetery

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Capture the Scene writing workshop at Arnos Vale Cemetery on Sunday 21 October 2012.

In the cemetery’s elegant Anglican Chapel, we drew on all our senses to create pieces of writing that truly evoked the very special atmosphere of this extraordinary place.

Next time we’ll aim for a three-hour rather than two-hour course to take better advantage of the surroundings and allow more time to breathe!

  1. This was my first attempt at creative writing since leaving compulsory education over two decades ago and I was surprised at what could be tapped into in such a short workshop. Thank you. Arnos Vale was a great venue for it too!
