GET WRITING! Writing Workshop for New and Emerging Writers – Fiction

In this all day workshop, I will help you uncover what you need to turn your ideas into a story. By setting out the basics of storytelling in small, concentrated parts, I will offer strategies and processes to help you build words into a story — whether you know what that story is yet or not! Drawing on more than ten years’ experience running writing workshops and having authored five published books, I will offer instruction on craft and technique, guided exercises and workshopping, plus “wild writing” within a group of fellow aspiring writers. All this and lunch!
