Creative Writing for Autumn

September is upon us! Anyone else got that excited, optimistic, new-pencil-case feeling? September always feels like a New Year for me. While, during the actual New Year I am generally sluggish and lacklustre (due to eating my own bodyweight in Quality Street) this time of year has everything going for it – the start of a beautiful season, a chance to get new plans and projects underway, and the excuse to buy new stationery. Hurrah!

And with the ‘new year’ come the new classes for Autumn.

If you are new to writing and new to my sessions then come along to a BEGINNERS PRACTICE class on September 7th or October 19th.  You’ll all be new starters, and the class is very supportive and relaxed, so there’s no danger of feeling out of your depth. Classes take place from 7pm-9pm at The Lloyds function room in Chorlton. Just click the dates for more info and to book.

Looking for a daytime class? My Tuesday afternoon PRACTICE class is open to newbies and regulars and will take place at 1.30pm-3.30pm on September 5thOctober 3rd andNovember 7th in the beautifully relaxing surroundings of the World Peace Cafe on High Lane.

Been to a class before? Then come along to the regular Thursday night PRACTICE classes, also taking place at The Lloyds on September 14 and November 2nd 

And for those who want to sharpen their writing skills and develop their technique with a view to getting published, Autumn’s first FOCUS class will be on Thursday October 5 and will explore POV and Tense while on November 9th we’ll look at the perennial problem for writers and aspiring writers alike –  how the hell to find the time to write in our increasingly busy lives.

For all of the above just click the dates to get more info and book, or you can email me at if you have any questions.
