Here’s an event which the younger members of our club may wanna go for:
CREATIVE WRITING with NICK TOCZEK, UK for all BUDDING YOUNG WRITERS
How to Become a Writer:
Join us as Nick starts his session with his famous performance poetry which includes writing ideas so that the pupils can start writing immediately afterwards.
“The greatest success was without doubt ‘Mr Dynamite’, Nick Toczek whose performance of all-round writings exploded like a firework.”
– German daily Neue Presse (reviewing an appearance at Frankfurt Bookfair)
Thereafter, a lively and inspirational workshop in which Nick passes on his different writing ideas and approaches, and useful working methods. Nick will cover poetry, fiction, true stories, storytelling as well as story writing.
“A powerful writer who spins words into images with such seeming ease… He uses language in ways others can never hope to emulate” – U.S. Small Press Review.
a best-selling author who currently works variously as a poet, storyteller, novelist, stand-up comic, political researcher, creative writing tutor, journalist, librettist, advertising copy-writer, political speech-writer, and has presented his own weekly radio show for more than ten years.
He has published over 30 books and has made about 40,000 public appearances. His poetry books alone have sold around half a million copies. As a writer in schools, Nick specialised in working with pupils on creative writing, and has visited more than 4,000 schools.
