The workshops

Libraries are working in partnership with Museums to bring two D. H. Lawrence Creative Writing Workshops to Wollaton Library. In celebration of the acquisition of the last known portrait of D. H. Lawrence, (now available to view at Newstead Abbey) these creative writing workshops, one aimed at 16+ and adults, and one aimed at 11-16 year olds, will explore the work of the famous Nottinghamshire writer.

Drawing inspiration from Lawrence’s fascinating and varied written portraits of the area he called ‘the country of my heart,’ and of the people who lived here, participants will be encouraged to write about their own places and people.

Special thanks go to Friends of Nottingham City Museums, The D H Lawrence Society and donations to Nottingham City Museums from visitors.
