This workshop day is designed to help you free things up, explore new ideas and give your inner critic the slip by using a variety of techniques that you can then take home and adapt to your own writing practice.

The lunch break will be from 1-2pm. Bring along your own lunch or visit the cafe or surrounding cafes.
