This interactive talk is aimed at people just starting out on their writing journey and will be packed full of tips on how to kick-start your writing, both creatively and practically. From how to approach the dreaded blank page and find your authentic voice, to how to carve out time in your busy life to sit down and write. Cathy will answer your questions live and you’ll also have the opportunity to submit questions in advance, when you book.

This talk will take place on Zoom. You don’t need your own Zoom account to join us, just a computer, laptop or phone and an internet connection. Live captioning will be available.
