Yes, it’s that time of year again. Spring has sprung, the lambs have leapt, the blossom has blossomed, the spring rains have reigned, and we’re nearly ready for the summertime. Every year at Nottingham Writers’ Studio we run a series of Summer Taster writing workshops. They’re short and sweet, affordable, and we have a pretty good line-up for you this year, if I do say so myself.
All workshops cost £5 per person (£3 concessions). Please book via the individual event pages in the description links below.
