Book your place on Free Solstice Shorts Writers Workshops

As part of the Solstice Shorts Festival Arachne Press and Spread the Word are teaming up to bring this FREE workshop for writers to the festival.

Hosted by Paul Sherreard, Writing Dimensions looks at writing in response to Place, Time and Space. A unique opportunity to write in the Royal Observatory and explore character within a place, be inspired by both the architecture and setting but also the artifacts and concepts that the Observatory celebrates, and of course the fact that you will be writing on the shortest day of the year (and the longest nights are either side of you!)

We are running this workshop 3 times during the day, with THE MIDDLE SESSION Writing with your Ears hosted by Cherry Potts including LIVE Improvised MUSIC from IAN KENNEDY and SARAH LLOYD as an additional inspiration.

If you want to, you can come to more than one session, but you must book each individual sessions to do so.

Workshops will be BSL Interpreted.
