THE WRITER’S TOOLKIT

Sunday 9 May 10:30 – 12:00

This workshop is for anyone who wants to write, but doesn’t know exactly where to start! If the blank page looks like an uncrossable void, you’ll find help and guidance here. By the end of the class, you’ll be equipped with a basic toolkit of techniques and skills to get you writing and creating with confidence.

THE FEAR

Sunday 23 May 10:30 – 12:00

“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do.” Steven Pressfield.

Procrastination, self-sabotage, imposter syndrome and other common writing problems affect us all from time to time. This workshop will show you some ways to keep writing and keep faith in your story when the Fear is upon you.

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

Sunday 20 June 10:30 – 12:00

A workshop about other worlds, portals to alternate dimensions, time slips, parallel universes, dreams and visions. If you want your writing to escape from reality, this workshop will help you find the crossing place.

A WRITER’S GUIDE TO CANCEL CULTURE

Sunday 4 July 10:30 – 12:00

How should a writer navigate online culture when writing the “wrong thing” could mean the end of your career? This workshop will guide you through some common pitfalls and equip you with the resilience to withstand the slings and arrows of online outrage.

WRITER’S BLOCK

Sunday 18 July 10:30 – 12:00

You can’t write, you’ve run out of ideas, you’re stuck, miserable, feel useless and wonder if you’ll ever write anything again? It’s called writer’s block, and we’ve all been there. This workshop aims to help unblock your creativity and your confidence. You can beat the block!

SHORT FICTION EXPERIMENTS
