Begin Writing

Starts: 13:00 On 08 May 2024 | Ends: 14:30 On 19 June 2024

Have you always wanted to write but haven't had the confidence? Then join my weekly creative writing workshops aimed at beginners or people who haven't written in a long time. I will provide several writing exercises and prompts to help you create your own poems, stories and mini memoirs. As this is a course for beginners, no one is asked to read aloud their work, but there will be opportunities to share with our small supportive group if you wish. Please see my Begin Writing Facebook page to find out what other students are saying about the course.
