What are these workshops about?
In this series of five Write Together online creative writing workshops, you’ll be offered themed prompts to help you get words on the page, plus the space to share your words with others. You’ll be guided all the way, so whether or not you have a regular writing practice, you’ll be welcomed wholeheartedly.
These are sessions where you can find inspiration and enjoy the process of writing together.
This is for you if:
* you enjoy writing with others…
* …or you haven’t written before and want to get started.
* you have a work in progress that needs some new energy
* you want to connect with other writers
* you want support with getting ideas flowing.
Come and meet like-minded people, get words out and set them free!

Week 4 = Rebel
Week 5 = Sage
You will be offered prompts and provocations that are likely to include movement, discussion and poetry and are designed to help you get words out.
