Wordsmith: Advancing With Wordsmith Workshops Tickets and Dates
Wordsmith: Rewriting The Cliches
The Boileroom, Guildford
Held in the main room of the venue.
This set of eight workshops is for those who would like to build on their skills from the introductory creative writing workshops or for others of you out there who already have a foundation in creative writing. People are welcome to attend the whole course; or one-off workshops.
How we do it? Usually workshops will start with a tutorial on the area of writing highlighted for that week, followed by an example to illustrate and a discussion. We will always have time to write on that week's topic and usually there will be space to read some of your work.
What to Bring? An open mind and motivation, something you like writing with and a notebook. Writing long-hand is encouraged during workshop time.
