Read Like a Writer with Jade Cuttle
Creative and sensitive reading is a must-have addition to any writer’s toolkit. Learn how some of the most exciting writers at work today gain inspiration and technique from the books that they love.
Join poet, journalist, Ambit editor and Costa Book Awards judge Jade Cuttle as she shares a passage from a book that helped to inspire her writing. Find out how Jade uses reading – whether it’s of books by other writers, or even the language of trees – to inform her own work that moves nimbly between forms.
This session is perfect for readers and creative writers of all stripes – whether you’d like to get a flavour for how our writing workshops work, or you’re a Dragon Hall regular looking for inspiration and to reconnect with the joy of close reading.
‘I enjoyed hearing from someone who’s been at the difficult stage I am currently at and hearing how they progressed’ – Participant, Read Like a Writer with Megan Bradbury
