Writers, step away from families and day jobs, and come spend a day giving your creative writing the time it needs. You could be working on a short or long project – or perhaps you just want to get back into writing after a few years break.
Whatever your background or experience, come enjoy this one-day writers’ retreat on Saturday 3 November. The workshop retreat is led by creative writing tutor Umi Sinha, who has taught autobiography and fiction writing at Sussex University for 10 years.
Umi will give you a chance to explore the theme ‘history of ourselves’, but the workshop will also give you plenty of time for writing.
10.30am-4pm, Brighton Museum. Course: £20 including lunch and refreshments. Advance booking from http://writingourlegacy2012.eventbrite.co.uk
