For many writers the time spent in workshops is time they spend experimenting and trying out new ways of approaching their writing. That word experiment brings to mind the laboratory, a place where transformation takes place under controlled conditions. We all have at our disposal the basic elements — language — but perhaps unlike experiments conducted in a laboratory, with writing, the results are less predictable and measurable. It’s important for you to realise that the work you are expected to produce in workshops is first draft raw material for reworking and extending in your own time; a workshop is more about process than product.
