Versatile Writers: How to expand your repertoire

30 January @ 11:00 - 13:00

About this Event

This special one-off workshop brought to you by award-winning author, Shreya Sen-Handley has been designed to help writers realise the range of creative writing they are capable of doing and guide them on the road to expanding their repertoire.

Writers, like actors, can get typecast. But the ability to write in a range of formats, genres and styles not only means further opportunities to be published and read, but to grow as a writer, push boundaries, and enjoy our calling more. It means realising our full potential as writers, and as individuals too. This workshop will help you realise how versatile you are and guide you in expanding your repertoire.
