What are the most important influences which make us the adults we are today? Nature, nurture or our education in the widest sense? During this day we will explore the many areas of education we had as children: the teachers who inspired us with a love of learning and conversely those who sadly made us feel a failure and stupid. We will discuss a variety of novels and poems which describe many different schools and influences and their impact on the writer’s life and personality. There will be three writing sessions and the opportunity to read your work to the group and gain helpful feedback. All-comers welcome.
