New parents can get creative and have a taster of what it's like to be a fiction writer, all while snuggling with their baby. A series of six workshops explore the basics of writing fiction; from genres, techniques, exploring inspiring works of fiction and plenty of time to try it out yourself!
The workshops are designed with parents in mind so they are absolutely baby-friendly - with sensory play and storytelling - while parents can explore styles of fiction writing through group readings, activities and feedback. It may be chaotic, but we make it work!

As a workshop leader, and a mummy, I will try my best to keep baby entertained and come equipped with plenty of sparkling, noisy toys to keep them occupied while parents try their hand at writing. (We're not a creche, we just welcome the chaos that bringing your baby with you creates. )
