To enrol on the following free non-accredited courses, there is no minimum entry requirement.

Writing Landscape at Llanishen Reservoir

This one-day workshop will take place at the Llanishen Reservoir and introduce participants to nature writing as well as the art of careful observation. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss place poetry, read nonfiction about local landscapes, write their own pieces inspired by the reservoir, and share their work in a relaxed and supportive environment.  This workshop is suitable for anyone, from absolute beginners to published authors. Because the workshop is outdoors, participants should dress appropriately for the Welsh weather. Everyone who attends should also bring a packed lunch and a flask of tea and coffee or a cold drink. 'Writing Landscape the Llanishen Reservoir' will be run by Christina Thatcher, a Creative Writing Lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University. Christina is a professional poet who regularly runs creative writing projects for schools, art galleries, community centres, and non-profit organisations. She has delivered Landscape Writing sessions in Abergavenny, Aberdare, Brecon, Pembrokeshire, and Rhondda Cynon Taff.
