Are you interested in writing, and want to swap ideas and write in a comfortable and supporting environment? Don’t spend pounds on expensive retreats and courses, writes Michelle Corns.
Kirkstall Valley Development Trust (KVDT) are running a creative writing workshop, on Friday afternoons. These will be informal, pay as you feel sessions. It doesn’t matter about the level of experience.
It is about providing a supportive and informal environment.
Creative writing has many positive benefits that outweigh the value of merely creating a piece of literature.
Writing is a great method of releasing stress, as it gives you time to plan what you would like to say. Your characters can achieve everything you have dreamed of.
The stories can be a reflection of yourself and your inner dreams and desires.
Writing can help you come up with solutions to problems and help you to discover a new way of seeing the world…or creating your own, like JK Rowling, Tolkien or George RR Martin.
Perhaps you want to write a novel… or perhaps you have led an interesting life and want to write your autobiography, even if you just want to write Harry Potter fanfiction (as long as you credit the original author!), then this group is for you.
Budding poets are welcome too. This group is a space to come together with like-minded individuals and inspire and support each other.
The workshop will be held on Fridays from 1.30pm-3.30pm at Unit 11, Kirkstall Bridge Retail Centre. All welcome.
