Telling A Different Story First Run Sep-Dec 2021

The first run of Telling A Different Story, begins on September the 20th at 14.00.


The fully online and free programme runs for 11 weeks and is delivered in collaboration with Dorset Council and the Weymouth Library Service.

Telling a Different Story Is a creative writing programme aimed at individuals belonging to minority and disadvantaged groups in the UK.

The underpinning principles of the programme are creativity, opportunity, tolerance, understanding and mutual respect.

The programme works with individuals and groups from across a wide range of minority and protected groups in the UK including racial, religious and ethnic minorities, the physically disabled, the LGBTQ community and the aged, as well as groups such as the homeless, ex-prisoners and ex-service personnel.

The programme runs across 10 x 3-hour weekly taught classes during which each student develops a short story, short play or a short film based on or inspired by their own unique experiences.

Each student is supported by the group but also receives individual feedback and guidance from an experienced tutor encouraging them to create the very best story they are capable of.
