(Clinton Marius)

The Writers’ Guild of South Africa (WGSA) continues its series of monthly gatherings in Durban tonight (June 4) with a workshop at Ike’s Books.

The workshop is titled When One Hair Turns Gold and will be presented 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.

The session will take place from 18h00 to 20h00 tonight (June 4) at Ike’s Books which is situated at 48a Florida Road, Morningside, Durban. Entrance is free but all bookings must be done through  Limited space available so booking is essential
