Creative Writing Workshops

From Wednesday 3rd November, I will be offering a free writing class.

This friendly writing class is open to all abilities and will focus on poetry and flash fiction, though you can write in different forms too. With warm-up exercises, prompts and shared reading focusing on a different theme each week, tutor Bryony will support you to write and share your work.

Our Friday lunch club is now back at Seven Dials this week, after being at the lovely Phoenix Garden for the last couple of weeks.

This friday we shall be serving a delicious Roast Beef lunch with Yorkshire pudding and all the usual trimmings!

Lunch is served from 12:30.
Five spaces -pre booking essential.

And Finally…

If you need to contact me, please contact me only on this mobile number 07759 646507.
Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.

It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.

Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
