Period piece

Read any  Daphne Du Maurier? Write a memoir piece about the first time you read a classic novel you loved. Where were you? Was it a gift? Did you buy it? Was it in a classroom at school? Write about everything to do with your life at that time. Include the five senses. Have fun.

Write into the Light

The days are getting shorter and the world is certainly dark these days.

Come along to Beaufort Books in Larkhall, Bath on Wednesday morning, 13th December, to write into the light. You’ll create some short-short fiction prompted by positive news. And set a few achievable writing goals for the New Year. Mince pies and hot drinks included. And the opportunity to get away from the Christmas shopping crowds in central Bath for some quiet writing time. Maximum eight people. Beginners and experienced writers welcome.

Book soon for this special pop-up Winter Solstice session with Jude. Maximum eight people.  This one’s been and gone but Jude will be offering more short fiction events in the New Year
