Creative Writing is the perfect place for budding or experienced writers to come along to socialise, share ideas, and most importantly, write.

Each session includes a writing prompt to get you on your way, but where you take it is up to you!

Tutor Joan Opie offers guidance and teaching throughout your first stages of writing in a warm and supportive atmosphere. If you already have some experience we provide helpful hints and feedback that will develop and improve your work.

The group meets every two weeks on a Thursday morning 10 am -12 noon.
