Has a trip to the Chester Literature Festival inspired you to write your own story?

If so, the #WriteHereWriteNow group is running an open workshop as part of the New Voices afternoon at this year’s festival.
This is a starter-level workshop for anyone interested to start a blog, write for magazines, write that book or start dabbling in poetry.

Take part in a couple of simple exercises and group members will be on hand to offer their feedback.
Plus, there will be a chance to see work by our members and discuss their ideas with them.

Please email atkinson.david@icloud.com to express interest in attending, or drop-in on the day.

This workshop precedes New Voices taking place in the Garret Theatre at 1pm
