Got the itch to write?
A Free Taster Workshop introducing the Wycombe Sound Creative Writing Workshops.
These workshops provide an encouraging and supportive atmosphere aimed at re-energising your writer’s mojo: I will deal with a specific topic every week designed to provide a different perspective on the skills you need to write, combined with constructive but thorough critiques of work produced in the workshops.
“The workshops have inspired me to write properly (and) improve my style within a relatively short period of time.”
Weekly topics, weekly writing projects and weekly critiques will remind you how important writing is to you and why it needs a special place in your life.
“I have been inspired to write more and I have a better understanding of how to progress my ideas.”
If your writing ambitions have stalled these workshops are designed to give you a kick start This is achieved in the inspiring setting of The Blue Room at Wycombe Sound 106.6fm. Plus Your best work will be broadcast on Wycombe Sound.
“I was writing but I was never happy with it. Now I’m beginning to see why!”
Be prepared to write a lot, think a lot and – as much as you feel able – contribute to group discussions. Reader feedback will give our writers a rare insight into the readers’ perspective on their work.
