Other Worlds

Sat 15 November

An explorative workshop for writers working in any form, led by Catherine Smith. Writers have always been fascinated by the possibilities of 'other' worlds. A workshop exploring physical and psychological landscapes, using writing exercises to 'build our own worlds' and let our fictional characters loose in them.
