  • Number of places: 18
  • Start date: 07 October 2020
  • Description:

    This writers' workshop is a self-help group that inspires and develops writing through the mutual exchange of ideas. Current members' writing projects include various types of fiction, family memoirs and historical biography. Each week four members read a short piece of their own writing (1500 to 2000 words) at least 2 or 3 times per term. The group listens and offers constructive and supportive feed-back. We aim to learn from each other and consider such topics as getting started, voice, characterisation, plot and story lines, as well as handling dialogue. The intention of the Workshop is to enable members to develop confidence in their writing. If they finish a current project, they may wish to continue with another into the following year. Vacancies permitting, we welcome new members during the year.

    Note: The Autumn term will be held via email. The Spring term will be held via Zoom on alternate Wednesdays starting 20 January.
