Whether you are a writer looking for feedback or a beginner just getting started, you will find support and encouragement in one of these groups.
Whatever your starting point or reasons for writing this course will help you develop your writing skills.
The classes have been running for over a year. They provide a positive, creative space to encourage writers at all stages in their writing practice. Each week we will have time to write in the class using a variety of prompts and exercises. We will explore fiction, poetry, drama and autobiographical writing and discuss works by other writers, classic and contemporary. There will be opportunity to receive feedback on ongoing projects and optional, weekly writing tasks to complete at home.
The venue is the lovely Friends Meeting House at 12 Southdown Road, Harpenden, AL5 1PD. It is a short walk from Harpenden station so easily accessible for those coming by train from St Albans, Luton or London. There is a small car park and free parking after 6pm on local roads.
I look forward to welcoming you to The Writing Space soon.
