Wrekin Writers’ Meeting and Writing Goal Workshop
The Civic Centre, Wellington
The Wrekin Writers are delighted to be presenting another Wellington Arts Festival meeting and workshop. This is a chance for anybody to come along and join in with the fun, support and inspirational writing techniques that have kept this local writing group flourishing for decades. The meeting will include an opportunity for anyone to present a short piece of inspirational writing. This can be your own work or work by others that has inspired you. Also, you may like to compete in a writing challenge. The challenge to bring to the meeting will need to include the word ‘Wellington’ at some point and should be a stand-alone piece of writing, or poetry, created by you using one hundred and fifty words or less.
After the meeting section there is a writing workshop designed to help you select some market goals for your work and then to encourage you to create smart plans to achieve these. The meeting and workshop are being led by the chairman of the Wrekin Writers, Darren Bailey.
We would be pleased to welcome anyone to this session especially those with an interest in creative writing. Children are always welcome if accompanied by an adult.
This event is free to attend and may be popular. To reserve places click here to book via the Wellington Festival Eventbrite Booking system, alternatively you phone Darren Bailey on 01952 405 178.
