Take part in an informal writing workshop with poet Betty Doyle. Betty will take you through some writing techniques and creative exercises to help with the writing process.
There will be time after the workshop to spend time working on your writing which you may wish to read out (or have Betty read out for you) at the open mic which takes place later in the afternoon.
