Full list of Gillingham Library creative writing workshops and events

Booking is now open for all of the events I'm hosting as part of This Library is Yours at Gillingham Library in Dorset.

Creative Writing Workshops

We'll be looking for the hidden stories waiting to be discovered at Gillingham Library, searching for things in the real world that can take us to extraordinary places in our writing. Taking inspiration from everyday objects and characters we'll weave fantasies that can be as close to or far from the real world as you like. Attending one of these writing workshops will give you the opportunity to be creative, get to know other aspiring writers and develop your writing skills.

Please note, each workshop is the same – please only book one. Ages 16+.

  • Thursday 14 February, 11am-12:30pm (past)

  • Friday 15 February, 3:30pm-4:15pm (past)

  • Tuesday 26 February, 5pm-6:30pm (past)

  • Friday 15 March, 3:30pm-5pm (past)

  • Saturday 16 March, 2pm-3:30pm (past)

  • Thursday 21 March, 2:30pm-4pm (past)

1-2-1 Sessions

Free 1:1 feedback sessions offering:

  • Feedback and thoughts for development on a short story of up to 2,000 words or extract of the same length from a longer piece of writing (fiction / non-fiction),

  • or feedback and thoughts for development on a poem or series of poems (up to 150 lines of poetry).

The session will focus the discussion on you and your writing. It's not a proofreading session or a writing workshop. You will need to send an electronic copy of any writing you wish to discuss one week before the session.

Please note that these sessions are now fully booked.
