What we're about
Write Here! Write Now! is a weekly creative writing workshop for everyone, whether you are a complete beginner or almost finished writing your third novel. As the title suggests, the workshop is focused on generating new work HERE and NOW! Too often we "shelve" our writing practice in favour of other commitments, chores, work, life (!) but unless we make the time to write, we may never fully realise our writing potential, nor what we are all capable of producing given the chance. Unlike other creative writing workshops, we won't rip your work apart, nor will we shower you with generic praise and leave it at that (although we are a very positive group and committed to encouraging people to write). Instead, we provide an inspiring and Supportive environment where the writer need only concern themselves with the creative process, and feel comfortable sharing their new work with other like-minded folks who can provide insight and suggestions. The exercises vary week by week, and each voice is treated as important. If you have always thought you might like to give it a try, then let this be your firm but gentle nudge!
Each workshop is 2 awesome hours of structured, inspiring writing exercises devised from MFA writing courses, found text, imagery, music, classic texts, theory, pyschology, synesthesia and pure imagination to help you along the way and allow you to write freely without wondering "where to start".
