A special opportunity to gain creative writing inspiration and guidance from successful playwright and former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy said: “At this stage in the season we are conscious of harvest; making and preserving. In this workshop we will look at themes of growth, durability and strength. We will look at how we can ‘harvest’ ideas, make sure we use up every bit of inspiration from what has happened around us during the year."
