Dear All

And so we plough into autumn..

In October I’ll be planning the winter literary menu and doing a whole heap of other tasks! I’m offering writing surgeries (workshopping your own work) and page to stage workshops in the next while. They’ll also be slots for working one to one or in small groups on getting your own work (poetry or prose) where you want it. Details coming soon.. watch out for the next courses and events to go out here: http://www.freewriterscentre.org/freewriterscentre/live-events/

Coming up:

Only 8 places! £25 includes a 1 hour read, review and edit/critique of your own piece by me via email prior to the live workshop where you will then have group exposure to your work and further input.

Monday 30th October 2pm to 4.30pm I’ll be delivering a brand new 2 and half hour creative writing workshop called Spectacular Bridges & Fabulous Beings as part of the Little Death Festival at Mudita House, 43 Morrab Rd, Penzance, Cornwall. It will be following from the theme of creating (in prose or poetry) your own bridge between the worlds and a fabulous creature that travels across it.
