Always wanted to learn how to write creatively?  Want to get some expert tips and inspiration from an award-winning author?

Courttia Newland, an established author whose career has spanned across books, screen and stage, will be coming to Aston-Mansfield to run some creative writing workshops over the coming months.   There will be fun, imaginative activities focused on short fiction and tailored to your needs.

The two sessions are free, appropriate for anyone aged 12+, and designed to inspire, encourage and give you a kick-start in your writing projects/hobbies.  The sessions will follow on from each other, in order for you to get the most out of your time with Courttia, and will take place at Durning Hall on:

Tuesday 30th September        5.00-7.00pm

Tuesday 7th October               5.00-7.00pm

The sessions are brought to you by Newham New Deal Partnership (NDP), with the support of Arts Council England, who work locally to introduce and engage local residents to the arts.  There will be other workshops occurring across Newham over the Autumn/Winter period

Booking is essential.  To book your place, or find out about other workshops in the area, contact Newham NDP, email at: [email protected] or telephone on: 020 7366 6343
