We've posted this Forum so that anyone who came to our 4th Annual Collaborative Writing Workshop Brighton on 17 May (and anyone who didn't, but has something they want to say about Writing that Influences) can exchange ideas, comments and suggestions following our meeting.
Seventeen of us benefited from a rare opportunity to spend a day together in pleasant surroundings reflecting on and writing about experience and discovering opportunities to make our writing more influential, whatever its form or context. We were all a resource to each other, working within a flexible structure that enabled us all to benefit from each other's interests and energy on the day.
To those of you who came, we enjoyed working with you enormously.
Shortly, you'll receive a personal invitation to write something for the August issue of our journal e-Organisations and People.
Meantime, please pencil in the 2nd or 3rd Monday in May 2011 (exact date to be confirmed) to come along to our 5th Annual Collaborative Writing Workshop during the Brighton Festival. And please post your comments on 'Writing that influences' below.
To set the ball rolling, Bob has posted a snippet below of what he wrote during the afternoon session.
Best wishes. Alison, Vicky and Bob
Looking forward to tomorrow's workshop. Choosing some writing now. Hasta manana!
Love what you wrote, Bob! (Like the photo slightly less, Alison! - but these things are a necessary evil...)
Thanks for a really enjoyable day - look forward to seeing you again at Rachael's workshop later this month.
