A monthly clinic
Facilitator: Tessa Harris
A writer’s life can be a lonely one. Yet, over the course of the year, we’ll be running a creative on-line community ‘clinic’, which will hold monthly evening drop-in’ sessions.
Event time: Mon 17th May 2021 at 7:00pm - Mon 17th May 2021 at 8:30pm
Welcome to The Writers Clinic
Here, you’ll be able to bring your writing woes and, with expert help and support, learn how to overcome the various difficulties all writers face.
Topics covered will range from plotting to editing. So, if you feel you’re writing suffers from lack-lustre prose, stiff dialogue or queasy characters, the help and support the clinic dispenses could be just what the literary doctor ordered!
