Creative Writing Workshops

Sessions postponed until further notice

Wednesdays, 13:00 - 15:00

Explore your creative writing potential, whether you are a mature reflective writer, or have a novel you always wanted to write. Our Creative Writing Hub has a series of six writing workshops with Artist, Writing Teacher and Mentor, Cathy Lesurf.

These workshops are designed for all levels of writing ability. Cathy will use a range of fun and thought-provoking exercises and techniques to help you find and develop your writing style.

Whether you’ve always liked the idea of writing but are never sure where, or how, to start. Or if you would like to receive feedback on how to improve your work, these sessions will provide you with the support, advice and guidance to help you thrive in your writing endeavours.

Week One: Building Characters
Week Two: Thinking about Places and Settings
Week Three: Thinking about Plot - Story, Theme and Narrative Style
Week Four: Writing convincing dialogue
Week Five: Editing for purpose - putting it all together in a short, shareable piece
Week Six: Recording and sharing work

Workshops will take place on a fortnightly basis beginning Wednesday 12 February.
