All our workshops are intended to challenge, but we are rarely asked to write in a quite different genre. Helen took most of us way our of our comfort zone by reading a short example of magical realism and then telling us to go for it! And as always, we did. Typically, many of the pieces were both macabre and humourous, but we had a fair number of romantic and poetic ones as well. Next week is a Reading Week, optional theme:Love.
