Your chance to be anthropomorphic. This donkey may be happy, cunning, or just after an apple. You can take the donkey’s point of view, or write about a donkey you have known. Make it a memoir – that donkey ride on the beach, or a donkey you owned – or make it fiction. Have fun.


Who am I?

Weekly prompt from Alex

I bought this painting of a girl in the Portobello Road market. Who is she? What is her name? Bring her to life, and if you recognize her please email me!

    Update on our events. 3 places for the Get into Print Workshop on 22nd March. 9 places on our next series of writing workshops beginning 9th March 2017. Booking on our website.
