Cheshire West & Chester Council's Library Service - FREE 8 week creative writing course at Storyhouse & Ellesmere Port Library - Starting 30th October 2017


Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Library Service has secured funding to run a series of free creative writing workshops for adults at libraries across the borough this winter.
A grant of £3,971 has been awarded by the Arts Council England’s National Lottery funded ‘Grants for the Arts’ programme.
The Write Time Write Place project is a series of eight-week adult creative writing courses taking place in libraries from October to December 2017. The one and half hour sessions will take place during the daytime and will focus on such areas as inspiration, characterisation, settings and plotting stories, revising and editing.
Following on from the workshops, participants will be encouraged to finish their stories and submit them for a Write Time Write Place anthology, which will be professionally published and each course member given a copy. Cheshire West and Chester Libraries will also keep copies for their lending collection. Participants will also be given the opportunity to read extracts from their stories at an event at Storyhouse, for World Book Day 2018.
Write Now Write Place is the brainchild of Charles Lea, a local writer and principal of literacy project company Read Now Write Now. The first set of workshops will start in October at Storyhouse, Ellesmere Port, Northwich and Winsford Libraries.
