Creative Writing Taster

Ref: C2339900

Have you ever wondered what it's like to go to a creative writing workshop? Would you like to write, or do you have a short story or a poem tucked away somewhere? This taster session will show you something about joining a writing group. You'll meet other people and try out some writing exercises. Spelling isn't important, and nor is punctuation. And if you want to do more, there's a course in Rothley beginning in October, and others too.
