Whether it’s fact or fiction, brilliant things happen when women write down their stories. Whether you’re already an avid scribbler, if you’ve got a story you’ve always wanted to tell, or you just want to try putting pen to paper, this fun, informal workshop will look at generating ideas, creating character and atmosphere (and no-one has to read out loud unless they want to)!
