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 their work so far?

If so, then why not join me for ‘Elementary,  my dear writer’, my latest Creative Writing Clinic?

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!

In this clinic, you’ll enjoy a day exploring your  ideas in a friendly and welcoming environment. 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. 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!
