Creative Industries Trafford presents

Writers' Group



These two hour creative writing workshops, led by writer & poet Jazmine Linklater, are open to all and aim to facilitate new writing through a combination of reading and discussion, guided writing exercises, free writing time, and facilitated group workshop.

Writers can attend one, some or all of the sessions - there is no requirement to sign up for multiple workshops.

Each session will be split into three parts:

  • read and discuss texts together as a group

  • explore your own writing through structured creative writing activities

  • share work produced in the session

This is a great opportunity to come and write creatively in a supportive, safe, and nurturing environment. Whether you write poetry, scripts, non-fiction, novels or short stories, the sessions will focus on the experience of writing as a force for positive change, self-development and communion with one another.

Event dates are 21 Oct, 18 Nov 2019 and 20 Jan 2020. Sessions run between 6.30 - 8.30pm.

Tickets are £5 (plus booking fee) per sessions. To book, call 0161 912 5616 or visit here.
