Writing Workshops

Learn how to write a short story in a day. This workshop will take participants through the process of generating ideas, developing plots and writing a short story.

We’ll work on exercises to stimulate ideas and develop plots and there will be free writing time so you can get as many words down as possible.

From first inspiration to first draft, we’ll look at how you make the most of your writing on the way. Throughout the day there’ll be a chance to discuss your work with the tutors and other participants and deal with any plot problems and other issues as they arise.

All you need to bring is yourself, and a notebook and pen.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and also more experienced writers who want inspiration, motivation, and a chance to write in a supportive atmosphere.

£65  Includes tea/coffee. Please bring a packed lunch.
