The only books I can guarantee you'll never sell are the ones you haven't written or - worse - ones you've written but never shown to anyone else.'

In this workshop, author and creative writing tutor Anstey Harris will encourage participants to identify and celebrate themselves as writers, to value themselves and their work, and to expand that confidence into publication. We will look at the benefits of forming a writing tribe and of creative writing courses. There will be plenty of practical exercises as well as opportunities for discussion.
