News for Writers

When One Hair Turns Gold workshop

Writers’ Guild to host a workshop in Durban on Tuesday 4 June.

The Writers’ Guild of South Africa (WGSA) continues its series of monthly gatherings in Durban with a workshop called When One Hair Turns Gold, by Clinton Marius.

Through storytelling and poetry, the Durban-based playwright will pinpoint symbolism in fairy tales to lead workshop-goers on a journey of self-discovery.

“We don't see flowers,” says Marius, “we walk past them. The Inner Child sees and rejoices in being a part of this world that is sheer miracle. Is that person still alive in us? One of the ways we can reconnect with this inner, radiant being is through the archetypal clues in fairy tales.”

The workshop is open to members of the public, and WGSA representatives will also be present to answer any queries regarding membership.

WGSA is the only association in South Africa with the sole purpose of protecting, empowering and developing performance writers in the local film, television, radio, stage, animation and new media (internet – mobile and digital distribution, and gaming) industries.

When One Hair Turns Gold runs on Tuesday 4 June from 6-8pm at Ike’s Books, 48a Florida Road, Morningside, Durban. Workshop enquiries and bookings: Thea Aboud / Website:
