These eight creative writing workshops are for writers who want to make the best of their writing potential. Writers will produce new and imaginative work each week in a relaxed environment.
Whatever your style, genre or experience, you will explore your writing voice with exercises that trigger your creativity. This workshop is for writers at any stage of their writing who need a creative boost.
At each session, the group will examine a different component of creative writing, including: Location, Plot, Character, Dialogue, Era, Genre, Point of view, and Show don’t tell. The course will help you to focus on you as a writer and will leave you with achievable goals to continue your writing journey.
