Budding authors are invited to free writing workshop taking place at March and Chatteris libraries. .
Thanks to popular demand the Fen Speak Poetry Collective have organised a series of workshops where beginners and more experienced writers of all ages are welcome to hone their art.
Jonathan Totman, Fenland Poet Laureate 2015, said: “Creative writing is a great way of learning new skills, expressing yourself and having fun.
“These sessions, led by former Fenland Poet Laureate Elaine Ewart, are suitable if you’re trying creative writing for the first time, or if you’re more experienced and want to develop your techniques.
“We’re hoping to develop these sessions into a regular creative writing group, but for now, you may book on to one or more of these sessions – each will be different, and there will be stimulating exercises based on the things that give you inspiration – and advice on where to find more.”
