This writing life is full of challenges, so I'm rolling up my sleeves and preparing for a new one.
As you may well know, I've been an active member of East Dulwich Writers' Group for over a decade. Without them, I would probably never have completed a novel, let alone have two published and be able to earn my living as a freelance editor and creative writing tutor.
So when EDWG were invited to participate in the Kirkdale Pop Up, I offered to run a workshop on the group's behalf. I wanted to design a session that would appeal to all writers: fiction and non-fiction, novelists, short story writers, poets. I also wanted to aim it at as broad an audience as possible, to attract people at any stage in their writing career, from absolute beginners to more experienced writers looking for some company and to stretch their authorial muscles.
And this is the result. A 45 minute 'creative writing master class'.
In a South London pub.
On a Saturday lunchtime.
Two weeks before Xmas.
And did I mention that the session is free?
What could possibly go wrong?
It would be great to pack the event with eager writers looking for inspiration and socialising. If the worst comes to the worst, at least there will be an unending supply of alcohol.
