Literary Kitchen

If you are a beginner writer who wants to take their writing to the next level in a supportive, friendly, but challenging environment, come along and see what this course can do for you. Book a workshop, or drop-in between noon and 4pm to chat to the tutor and former students, about the course, and Literary Kitchen’s other services.


12-1pm: Writing From Memory – 10 places:
Writing exercises which use memories triggered by sound, rewritten through the senses.

Using prompts you will build a 50 word story; with feedback in pairs, and a final read out to the group.

"This course surpassed expectation. I feel like a ball of dough that has been proved in the Literary Kitchen, and is now ready to be baked into a delicious multi-seed loaf." Dawn Henderson, Creative Writing for Beginners, July 2013
