A series of five two-hour writing workshops lead by poet Suzannah Evans, Writing Space is ideal for anyone who struggles to find time or motivation to write, in any mode of writing. Based on the ‘Writing Marathon’ method by Naomi Goldberg, author of Writing Down The Bones, Writing Space is a workshop with no conventional prompts, no judgement, just plenty of time, a contemplative environment and a supportive atmosphere.
