Creative Writing

Led by Katy Walker.

Everyone has a story to tell - but how do you find the best way to tell it? Join award-winning playwright and creative writing tutor Katy Walker to find out in this series of workshops designed to get your creative juices flowing.

We’ll look at topics such as ideas, structure, rewriting, character, dialogue and the dreaded writers’ block, with a range of exercises to inspire, encourage and build confidence. These are practical sessions and, as well as looking at published extracts, participants will be encouraged to share their own work and give/receive feedback in a supportive, friendly environment.

Suitable for all levels of experience.

Please bring pen and paper.
