A series of four creative writing workshops that will help you get words flowing. Expect prompts, inventive exercises and opportunities to share your words.

* Full price and lower income options available (you decide which suits you)
* Plus option to Pass It Forward – Share the love and buy a ticket for someone who would benefit from a fully funded workshop place!

In this series of four Write Together online creative writing workshops, you’ll be offered themed prompts and provocations, movement and meditation all designed to help you get words on the page. You’ll also be given the space to share your words with others should you wish.

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 know that you enjoy writing with others…
* …or you haven’t written for a while and want to get started.
* you have a work in progress that needs some new energy.
* you want some fresh starting places for your writing.
* you want to connect with other writers.
* you want support to get ideas flowing.

Ideal for poets, essayists, memoirists and those who just want to enjoy the process of getting words down on the page.

Come and meet like-minded people, find some inspiration and set your words free!

What are the themes?
In this series we’ll be using place as the starting point for writing:

Week 1 = City
Week 2 = Forest
Week 3 = Mountain
Week 4 = Lake

As well as exploring personal relationships to these environments, we’ll look at examples of place in literature and will examine place as both metaphor and muse.

Sessions take place on Zoom, so join us, wherever you are in the world.

“WriteClub is a powerful force for creativity, positivity, and community. Every session is clearly structured, but within that structure is loads of freedom to explore the given topic.
