New Year is a great time to kickstart your ideas and commit to writing. In a series of three friendly and inspiring workshops, join like-minded folk to explore your writing practice, create new ideas and work on that project you've been meaning to get to for a while...
In a series of three workshops running from January-March you will explore character, place, and the art of storytelling, with Anita Belli. This will help you to create fascinating and original fiction, grown from small seeds and nurtured by the unexpected. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction or simply write stories about your own life, these workshops will add vitality to your voice and challenge your imagination.
In friendly group writing sessions, Anita will guide you through a series of exercises to get your imagination flowing and bring your fiction alive. You will have a chance to share your work and receive feedback, and you will be encouraged to keep writing because, although motivation gets you started, developing a writing habit keeps you going!
The workshops will run on the following dates:
Saturday 13 January
Saturday 10 February
Saturday 17 March
All workshops will run from 10am-1pm.
