Our regular workshops provide a stimulating and supportive atmosphere for writers of all ages and abilities. People are encouraged to bring along their own work to discuss, be it a poem, short story, novel or play. There is no fee to attend the workshops but we do ask for donations.  Groundrules for Workshops
