Time to Write with Midge Gillies

Do you have a secret desire to express yourself in words – beyond a tweet, a text message or an email? Or have you ever found yourself lost in a memoir, a novel or a short story?

 

This informal workshop will explore the joys of writing and reading. We will look at ways to kick-start your own creative writing and how to make good writing part of your daily routine.
