Creative Writing Taster Workshops

Our Creative Writing taster workshops, designed for beginners and novices, will provide the tools needed to delve into your creativity and get the juices flowing in a relaxed, friendly and encouraging environment.

Using writing exercises and discussion, you will be introduced to a wide range of simple approaches designed to help shape and develop your own writing style and discover your unique creative voice. 

The workshops will be led by seasoned facilitator and freelance performer and writer, Nicole Rourke, and weather permitting, will take place in the inspirational surroundings of the Richmond Barracks garden.

Note: The workshops will run over four Wednesdays in July and will each last for two hours. You can book a place in one session or you can book for all four.

Places are limited so we advise early booking to guarantee your place.
