  • @import url(;@import url(/preview/styles-cuteeditor.css); This week join us for a magical Wednesday WORD! - exploring magic, escapology and creative writing - with magician, poet and educator, John Constantinou.

    John Constantinou is a member of the Wednesday WORD!s Collective and has had a near 30-year career in education. He started as a college lecturer for a number of years before retraining as a careers adviser, moving into the Higher Education sector at the University of Leicester for 20 years before taking early retirement. He fulfilled a variety of roles at the university all of which involved considerable amounts of lecturing, workshopping, and facilitating skills sessions - a background that is useful in this context. 

    John’s background as a magician will heavily inform the themes of this week’s session. The workshop will be suitable for all levels but no experience is required - of writing, magic, or escapology…

There is another padlocked chain around his middle and another round his neck, this last secured by a larger lock. The Wednesday WORD! logo is position on top right hand corner of the image.
