Yay! New Dates for Elementary, My Dear Writer!

Do you want to write a book but don’t know where to start?

Do you have a story idea that won’t let you go?

Are you a secret scribbler who’s been too shy to share your work so far?

If so, then ‘Elementary,  my dear writer’ is the perfect workshop for you.

Suitable for beginners right through to experienced writers, ‘Elementary, my dear writer’ can help you develop a picture book, a cook book, a novel, a short story or anything in between!

Enjoy a day exploring your ideas in a friendly and welcoming environment with an experienced author and writing teacher.

Yes, taking the first step can be daunting, but never fear, this clinic is designed for people who are just starting out, as well as those who are further along their writing path but need a little help to bring their ideas to life.

Through readings and exercises, ‘Elementary, my dear writer’ will help you to get your great ideas on the page. You’ll develop a clear plan for your work and a strong sense of who might read it. And we’ll explore voice and style as well as plot, point of view, structure, logic and how to generate ideas.

There will be plenty of time for questions and everyone will have the chance to share a short piece with the group, although this is optional. There’s no pressure to perform in front of others!

Learn how to harness your ideas, trust your voice, find inspiration

and stay motivated in this full-day writing workshop.
