CFWA 2019 Workshop – Brighton #5

Would you like to explore new approaches to writing in a safe, supportive and fun environment? Join author Laura Wilkinson for a series of six inspiring workshops, designed to get you writing and sharing new work. Linked to the CFWA 2019 competition, our first session will examine personal objects as a springboard for stories and poems. Subsequent sessions will be created for the specific needs of the group. Suitable for beginners and more established writers. Bring a (small!) object from home to the first session.
