Creative Writing Day

Sun 23 June

10am - 4pm

Sharpen your quills...Satyagita will be leading another creative writing day. The session will include warm-up writing exercises in the morning – nothing too strenuous – and then possibly a writing marathon in the afternoon, or more exercises, depending on how warmed-up people feel. The writing we will be doing is for your eyes only and does not have to be read out (though you may want to).

Led by Satyagita

Please bring vegetarian, ideally vegan, lunch to share
