The Staffordshire Hoard – A Day for Creative Writers

Author Nick Corder will lead a workshop using the Staffordshire Hoard as a springboard for imaginative writing at City Central Library, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, on Saturday 19 March 2011, 10.00-3.00.

“In Saxon times, the Lord would thank his warriors when they had been victorious in battle with a huge feast in his Great Hall. Part of the entertainment would be story-telling.  Probably the most famous of these stories is Beowulf.  The bravest warriors would be rewarded with spoils from the battle-field. We’d like to create some imaginative writing around the theme of the hoard.”
