Creative Writing For Fearties Credit: GWL

In these three Fearties sessions we will explore character, plot, setting and dialogue with writing exercises that will coax those words out of your head and onto the page in a relaxed and supportive way. As a special treat, our Saturday session is a special with Ethyl Smith, previous winner of our Bold Types writing competition who has since gone on to have her first novel published. Ethyl will be facilitating a session on dialogue and finding your character’s voice.

“It is wonderful to have such a safe, supportive environment to take tentative steps in creative writing.” – Creative Writing for Fearties Participant
