Adult Learners' Week

This two-hour online workshop will introduce participants to the practice of creative writing. Those attending will be invited to read and discuss contemporary prose and poetry, produce their own creative pieces, and share their work in a supportive and friendly environment. This workshop is suitable for anyone, from absolute beginners to published writers – we all have stories to tell!
