Creative writing workshop this summer

This summer I’m going to be in Cumbria almost every weekend for the exhibition I’m running with my friend Jess, The World Beneath the Fells – all about the world of The Sky Beneath the Stone.

More about that later, but for now I wanted to let you know that I’m running a free five-week creative writing workshop for young people aged 16-25.

“Whether you’ve been writing since you could hold a pen or have never quite been sure where to start, this workshop is for anyone aged 16-25 who’s interested in discovering how stories work. We’ll learn about character development, story structure and worldbuilding, using the places we know and experiences we’ve had to propel our writing to far-flung planets or times gone by – or right here at home. Participants will work towards completing a short story or outlining and beginning a book, with the optional opportunity to read your work or have it read out at the final event of the exhibition, BETWEEN THE PAGES.

Every Sunday from 31st July to 28th August 2022, 2-4pm, Florence Arts Centre.
Participants should do their best to attend all sessions.

FREE but places are strictly limited.

To apply, send a paragraph about yourself and why you would like to participate to Please feel free to email with any questions you have about the course!”

If you know anyone who might be interested in taking part, please put them in touch as I’m really hoping to have a few keen pupils!
