Christmas Photo Competition: The Great Outdoors

 

Christmas Eve – Boxing Day (24th – 26th December), judging on Monday 28th December. 

Throughout Christmas we’ll be encouraging you to get outside and explore! Cityscapes or countryside, the choice is yours. You don’t have to be a pro photographer, or even to have a fancy camera – just enthusiasm, and an eye for an interesting angle. We’ll be encouraging the experts in the group to offer their ideas and feedback to those looking to learn. 

Instructions posted Christmas Eve morning in this Facebook group. You can also access this via the groups tab of our main Facebook page. Just ask to join & we’ll let you in! 

 

Dinnertalk

Wednesday 23rd – Saturday 26th December

Christmas programme from our partner organisation Dinnertalk! Hosted by the fantastic Skye or one of her enthusiastic team, these are small group discussions lasting around an hour, with people from all over the world.  

Chat and a Cuppa

 

Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day (24th – 26th December)

We will have a team of lovely volunteers, including qualified counsellors, on hand if anyone just fancies a cup of tea (or coffee!) and a chat over the Christmas period. Just send a private message to the Project via our Facebook page, or an email at hello@livingwellalone.com, and we’ll put you in touch. 

Making Pictures in the Mind – A Creative Writing Workshop

 

Wednesday 30th December, 14:00 – 16:00 GMT

The Living Well Alone Project is delighted to welcome science fiction author Andrew Bannister, who will lead this two hour workshop for the aspiring writers in our community. Places are limited to just fifteen, so be sure to book your place now! 

No experience needed – just bring your imagination and, if you like, your favourite short passage of prose. We will explore the way good writing creates pictures and impressions in the mind of the reader. Then we will have a go at showing without telling and world-building through two short exercises, all in the spirit of fun and mutual discovery!

Andrew Bannister is the author of The Spin Trilogy, consisting to CREATION MACHINE, IRON GODS and STONE CLOCK, published in the US by Tor, in Germany by Piper, and worldwide by Bantam. His latest book is the novella ACCORDING TO KOVAC, published by Newcon Press. He lives in Newark with a dog, a bicycle, and a large record collection, and he is adept at killing houseplants.
