Work in Progress
Every Tuesday from 1st Sept – 6th Oct 7-9pm

A series of six online writing workshops to help you develop your work so you can establish a writing habit and leap over creative blocks.

If you want to write creative prose and need help finding motivation and time, then this is the course for you.

With regular weekly meetings, quality feedback, deadlines and support, both from experienced writer and coach, Alison Powell, and a team of like-minded writers, you’ll work on:

* developing a piece of creative prose writing (flash fiction, short stories, novels, hybrids and experiments all welcome)
* establishing a regular writing habit
* receiving feedback on your writing
* finding out how to offer constructive criticism on other people’s work
* learning about narrative structure, character development and more
* focusing intensively on your writing project

You can reap the benefits of:

* weekly meetings
* small workshop groups
* super strict deadlines to help you keep your writing on track

You’ll be expected to produce 500-1000 words for each session and to read other people’s work between meetings.

This is ideal for you if:

* you want to write a novel or memoir and want some support
* you would benefit from constructive feedback on your writing
* you have an idea of what you want to write and just need some momentum to get going.
* you would love to meet like-minded people to share your writing with.

NB This course uses Zoom and Google Folders. You will need to type your work.

Booking essential. Limited spaces.
