Everyone has a story to tell!

This informal session will engage your powers of observation and imagination, stimulating ideas and thought-provoking discussion. You may be a complete beginner, or a more experienced writer in need of inspiration.

A series of writing exercises (both fun and practical) will develop ideas into words and encourage you to continue with writing projects beyond the workshop. This is a wonderful opportunity to unleash your creative side in the beautiful environment of Chawton House and grounds. All levels are welcome.

The programme runs from 10.00am to 2.30pm, and includes a light lunch, as well as morning coffee. Cost: £45 per person.
