Last autumn I led my first ever writing workshop in Downend library as part of South Gloucestershire Discover Festival. Since then I’ve been involved in other writing events, most recently joining forces with another local writer Pauline Masurel.
Mazzy and I enjoyed working together so much that we’re teaming up again for this year’s Discover Festival where we’re running a Get Writing workshop in two different venues.
Discover is such a great idea. There are all kinds of activites on offer at little or no cost and most of them repeated so that there’s bound to be one close to you. They’re mainly in libraries or sports centres so there are no bus fares or parking charges to worry about either. It’s the prefect chance to try out a new hobby or brush up on an old one.
Our event will be a fun and informal workshop open to anyone who has some writing experience or who would like to make a start. If you have your diary at the ready, here are our dates and times.
- Downend Library on Tuesday September 30th, 2 – 4pm
- Bradley Stoke Library on Saturday October 25th, 2 – 4pm
Do look out for the full programme in your local library or check out Discover online where you can book your place.
Books are my Bag
On Saturday October 11th, Bristol Women Writers are joining Southville Writers for a local author showcase in Foyles Cabot Circus to celebrate the ‘Books are my Bag’ day which encourages us all to use our bookshops more. The event will start at 2 pm and go on until 7 pm, so do pop in if you get the chance and hear some great local writers read and perform their work.
