Fancy yourself as a bit of a creative thinker? Well, on Friday 5 April we’re giving three lucky people the chance to trigger some fresh lightbulb moments, at an invite-only masterclass with the critically-acclaimed poet Luke Wright.
The toast of Edinburgh Fringe with sell-out shows and festival galore to his name, Luke has been turning heads and packing out venues with his rye wit, insightful observations and word wizardry for the last decade.
Always a highlight at Port Eliot Festival he’s performing his latest show Your New Favourite Poet for the first time in Cornwall on 4 April, at The Poly, Falmouth, and we’ve organised an exclusive, invite-only masterclass for our writers, clients and friends, the following day.
The exclusive masterclass – hosted at Espressini, Falmouth –, will be a chance for attendees to play with words, rhyme and reason under Luke’s guidance, to see what it sparks. He’ll work closely with everyone in the group to inspire, stimulate and entertain – sharing his knowledge and skills, and getting creative juices well and truly flowing. We’ll even be providing the coffee and cake to keep our collective creativity stimulated and imaginations peaking.
We’ve already sent hand-typed invites out to a handful of creative thinkers we know, but now we’re looking further afield – so that three other bright talents get the chance to come along and work with Luke too.
To be in with a shot of getting a spot at this one-off event, simply tweet @strangerfeed with some words that inspire you.
It could be a quote from a film, book or speech, a conversation you’ve had or heard, or even just something your grandma used to say. Together with Luke, the Stranger Collective team will choose three of the best and direct message the winners to arrange the details.
Here’s to feeding our creativity with the folks that inspire us. Good luck!
