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 skills in a range of forms? 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 writer and lecturer Laura Fish will help you access your creativity and get words on paper.

Through weekly writing exercises you’ll explore a range of techniques. The workshops will focus on experimentation and self-expression and the writing created can be in any form or genre.

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

This course is now fully booked. You may be interested in our other Start Writing courses in Blyth, Prudhoe and Whitley Bay
