About the Summer of Writing: Every summer, in July and August, I run five one-day workshops to inspire and develop your writing. It's the perfect time of year for writing in parks, gardens, pub gardens, and meadows - treat yourself and make it fun. If you can, I suggest you block off a full weekend for each workshop, so you can use the Sunday to write. If you can book a week or two off work, just for writing, all the better!
About the workshops: These full-day writing workshops are filled with creative, practical exercises. Each workshop can stand alone; I also make sure the five workshops together create a natural flow-through. All the workshops are multi-level – suitable for both beginners and experienced writers – and for most of the workshops you have the option to create new ideas or to develop a work in progress.
How we choose the workshops: I say "we" because it's collaborative - you put forward ideas and requests, and you vote for which workshops run. From September to February, you can add your ideas to the wish-list, then I collect your requests together with my own ideas and previous workshops, and create a long list. From February to April, you can vote from the long list for which workshops run. At the end of April, I choose the 5 workshops with the most votes, and you can start booking your workshops for July and August.
Vote below by ticking the workshops you'd like me to run. You can read more detailed explanations of each workshop here.
