Saturday 13th March 10.30am – 12 noon*

As we look ahead to Spring and to the growing of the light, participants are invited to these two practical online writing workshops, designed to ‘sow some seeds’: to inspire ideas for writing and developing new work.

All levels of experience welcome from experienced writers to first-timers, poets and fiction writers alike. The workshop will be fully participative with attendees taking part in writing exercises online, developing work at home and sharing their work with group participants. Come with writing materials and be prepared to write.

After booking your place the tutor will email you with the meeting link a few days before the workshop begins.

* Please Note: The tutor will require your email address for the purpose of this workshop *

You will require a device capable of running Zoom Meeting Software with a functioning screen, microphone, speakers and a stable connection to the internet.

All workshop participants are advised to test their Zoom connection prior to the workshop. Refunds will not be given for issues caused by your hardware, software or internet connectivity.
