Event Description

Rachael will introduce a session about writing inspired by her three-month stint with the GreenTop Circus in Sheffield.

Rachael is a qualified engineer who is passionate about drawing upon the creative process in constructing and creating our environment.

Rachel writes:

'The Engineer Who Ran Away to the Circus...and lived to tell the tale

Soon to be touring conferences around the world, if only her amazing skills are recognised by a world that doesn't always know true brilliance.

The Engineer will be visiting the AMED writer's group on June 18 to share her adventure of running away to the exotic city of Sheffield to indulge in kebabs, expensive public transport and a fulltime circus course. The Engineer will very generously teach you some tricks of the trade and promises to try her best to stay away from Power Point presentations and charts. As a small consolation, she does ask that several of you bring a technological device which can connect to the internet, which is where her tales have been recorded. There will be no triple integrals to solve, but you may have to write, play and sing. And tell her what she can do better next time because engineers...well, engineers are engineers even if they have run away to the circus.

The engineer who ran away to the circus'

To cover the cost of the venue, tickets cost £10 for full AMED Members, and £12.50 for others. Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be freely available. Please take your seats for 1.30 pm prompt, for the start of the performance.

Afterwards, we'll move on to Truckles Wine Bar which is here, just round the corner from the Penn Club

Do come along. It should be great fun - and somewhat different.

Meantime, why not visit Rachael's blog?

Hi, Rachael

Yes - there is wi-fi. We just need to obtain the password of the day.

I'll be in touch with you again soon about preps etc.

It was great to see you at Brighton, and I hope you're considering a positive response to my invitation to write something for the August issue of e-O&P.

Kind regards. Bob

Well, I shall of course be there! You may like to have a look at http://runningawaytothecircus.wordpress.com in advance, but I'd quite like people with laptops or other internet access to bring them along so reading the blog can be part of the experience. (Bob will there be wi-fi?)
