Have you always wanted to write – a novel, a short story, a memoir – but never got beyond the first few pages?
You might have written the book you’ve always dreamed about, but know there’s something about it that doesn’t feel quite right…
Perhaps you feel daunted, nervous to take the first step, scared of failure?

What if you just want to exercise your creativity in a safe space?
Start dates: 10 August or 12 October
Sessions will be held every Monday and Thursday for five weeks via Zoom.
