April 19th 2016
Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield, 6.30-8.30pm
13+ (with guardians for 13-15 yrs)
This workshop has been developed to provide inspiration for exploring the British Music Collection, with particular focus on female composers. Discover some of the women whose work is featured in the collection and use your response to their music as a springboard for developing your own writing voice.
During the workshop you will have the opportunity to research and start writing a short ‘spotlight article’ with guidance and the option of publishing your work on the British Music Collection website. Workshop attendees will have the option of developing their own online projects, including being the first to hear about a range of paid opportunities (for adult participants) to continue your work with the collection.
This will be of particular interest if you have ambitions in music journalism, or just want to use the British Music Collection to enjoy and share the work of female composers. We are particularly keen to encourage young authors.
