Six weeks of 90-minute writing workshops to help you hone your craft or pick up the pen for the first time

Are you a writer keen to develop your novel? Or maybe you’ve never touched pen to paper before and you just want to try your hand at something creative? This six-week course delivered by internationally bestselling novelist Matt Wesolowski will help you access your creativity and get words on paper.

Across six weeks of 90-minute workshops, Matt will guide you through the techniques he uses in his bestselling horror novels. Regardless of what genre you’re writing in, Matt will show how these rules can be applied to all types of fiction.


A limited number of free tickets are available to people for whom the cost is prohibitive. Please contact Margot Miltenberger
