X- Mouse Flash

with Anika Carpenter

X-Mouse Flash with Anika Carpenter

When I ran a Yuletide-themed workshop last year, a surprising number of mice cropped up in the stories participants wrote. Or maybe not so surprising given Clement Clarke Moore's seasonal poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, and its famous line 'not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...' That and the mouse king in The Nutcracker, and the sugar mice stocking fillers.

This infestation of mice convinced me that what was needed for Christmas this year, was a mouse-themed writing workshop.

So, dust off your Santa hats, make yourself a gingerbread latte and join me for some rodent-inspired writing.  

The workshop will feature mice from literature, history, art, fashion and cookery. 

If you've always wanted to attend a workshop that felt a bit like sifting through a surreal scrapbook, lovingly put together by someone who's had too much fresh air and not enough sleep, this is the workshop for you!
