The Red Writing Workshop with Mark Tredinnick


A crash-course in grace led by acclaimed poet and essayist Mark Tredinnick.

The workshop draws on Mark’s inspirational writing guide, The Little Red Writing Book—and on his lifetime in letters.

Writing well takes both courage and craft. In his Thursday Morning Manifesto Mark puts it this way. “Don’t settle for writing anyone could make. Write the way you would be loved; write the way you would be governed, the way you’d want justice done. Write the way you’d like to be remembered.”

The course emphasises craft and draws lessons from fine writing. It’s for anyone who writes and wants to write better. It’s for poets and novelists, journalists and diarists. It’s for memoirists and nature writers, and it’s for published writers and beginners.

Here’s some of what you’ll learn.

  1. How to write the way no one else can—the way you speak, only better.
  2. Some shortcuts to grace
  3. The art of the sentence
  4. The art of the revision: how to draft and how to redraft; how to finish; how to go back and do it all again.
