Wordsmith: Creative Writing Taster Workshop

An informal, social space to get together with like-minded scribblers.

Join us for an 1.5hr  taster session with Wordsmith's Charlotte Smith.

We will begin with the inspiration - the reasons we write, our desire to write and a look at what you might like to write. 
There will be a short, fun, writing exercise on the day - start as we mean to go on!

If you enjoy this session, get involved with our 6-week Creative Writing course for beginners launching in October - more info can be found on our What's On page listings.

About Charlotte Smith:

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t write – it is always there and always needs to be written. So, inspiring others through creative writing and its teaching has been a natural progression for me.

I am a qualified newspaper journalist with a special interest in arts journalism. I have 17 years’ experience in Europe and Dubai, as well as five years’ working as a creative writing tutor and mentor in Dubai and the UK.

I started out as an arts journalist for the newspaper, Creative Week in London, writing dance and literature features and later I worked on European Vibe Magazine in Madrid, writing their ‘books pages’ (literary reviews). I later edited the Arts Review for Dubai Community Arts Centre

I taught two popular Creative Writing courses - Ways into Creative Writing and Advancing Ways into Creative Writing for over four years, in Dubai.

I am currently teaching writing workshops in Surrey, writing my first novel and caring for my two young children.
