Day 1, the fiction workshop with Amal, will focus on elements like description, dialogue, themes and plots, exploring how these can be realised and developed. Participants are welcome to begin work on a new piece or to work on improving an existing one.

Day 2, the poetry writing workshop with Jane, will be a day of informal and fun writing exercises (no requirement to read out what you're experimenting with!) aimed at producing first drafts for new poems in a supportive atmosphere suitable for beginners and more experienced alike.

Day 3 will be a session of reading the new work and commentary by peers and Jane and Amal.

All welcome, whether novice or more experienced.

Registration is open to all. Please contact Amal Chatterjee (email below) for further details. Places are limited, so register soon to ensure a place.
