Get Writing

A friendly, supportive writing workshop for writers at all stages of their writing journeys.

A friendly, supportive writing workshop for writers at all stages of their writing journeys. Think of it as push-ups for your writing muscles, a play date for your inner child, a chance to exorcise your demons or just plain magic. It’s best experienced first-hand. 

You’ll be guided through a series of themed writing exercises to generate new writing in the company of other writers. You can write in whatever genre and for whatever purpose suits you. Expect fun, laughter, friendship and solidarity as side effects.

‘Beverley’s writing workshops mean the absolute world to me. They are a safe, welcoming space where you’re free to let your imagination fly, and my writing has come on in leaps and bounds since I’ve been attending. It’s through her workshops that I have found my writing voice. Thank you.’ Lucie Jolley, runner up in Novel Slam 2018

This is a weekly week workshop with Monday classes on September 9th, 16th. 23rd, 30th and October 7th, 14th 21st, and Wednesday classes on September 11th, 18th, 25rd, October 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd.
