Creative Writing Workshops For Beginners


Prize-winning novelist Diane Chandler and Blackbird are running a series of kitchen-table workshops for beginners at Diane’s home in Chiswick. Informal and fun, the three-hour, one-off sessions, An Introduction to Creative Writing, share insights on tackling eg. plot, character, dialogue, using your senses to bring writing to life - and also tips on how you might publish your work.

Simple, fun exercises - join in or just listen

Each workshop is limited to eight participants and will run from 9.45am until 1pm. 

Cost £40 to include a copy of Diane’s latest novel, Moondance, coffee and brownies!
