THIS workshop has been devised to help you get your ideas and experiences down on the page. Material created during the course given can be used by novelists, short story writers, life-memoirists, playwrights or poets as an impetus for their work. If you have trouble creating new work, this course will help you to find stories in you that you didn't know were there.
This course will include:
• five 2.5 hour writing sessions (Weeks 1 - 5)
• techniques to start writing and/or develop work-in-progress
• a chance to initiate pieces or to expand a manuscript
• the opportunity to have writing done in the workshop read and discussed
• Open Mic session (Week 6) for those who wish to share prepared work (voluntary)
The workshop will be conducted in a friendly, constructive atmosphere and is open to anyone with a desire to write, from beginners to experienced writers.
If you are unable to do the whole course or would like to try it, you can attend on a drop-in basis. The cost per session is £36. Please email or phone beforehand to ensure a place will be available. Drop-in sessions are payable in advance.
