Writing Workshops and Events in and around Wiltshire (and beyond!)





You are invited to join writer Josephine Corcoran in these enjoyable workshops.

In a supportive, friendly environment you will:

• read and discuss a variety of poems and short stories to inspire your own work.
• be guided by Josephine in a series of fun, sometimes challenging, and stimulating writing exercises.

The emphasis will always be on enjoyment and no-one should feel overly challenged or under pressure. The sessions are free (funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s ReadWrite South West project). 

Please book your place with the library so we know to expect you!
