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

Are you ready to start writing? These workshops are for anyone who would like to take the stories in their head and put them down on paper. This six-week course delivered by author Stephanie Butland will help you explore what makes writing work, and take a look at the tools of the trade: plot, structure, character, and getting the words down. This is a supportive environment in which to learn and grow as a writer, and everyone is welcome.

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

“This course has really made me think – it helped me to write again and believe in my writing. I would recommend them to any budding writers.”
