Creative Writing

Wednesdays, 10am – 12pm

Harbour Arts Centre

Take a walk through the creative writing experience, from putting those first thoughts/descriptions/emptions down on paper, to various types of publication. The group has a variety of interests and abilities so we cover as many aspects of writing as possible. No minimum level of experience required, just a willingness to put words on paper and have fun doing it.

The tutor is Francis Gay in The Sunday Post, writes The Friendship Book annually, is Wayfarer in the quarterly magazine Evergreen, wrote Dennis The Menace for The Beano, and has had a book published in Korean (which he can’t even read!)
