Ready, Steady, Write! – a one-day creative writing workshop

Tutor: Dorothy Max Prior

Saturday 28 November from 10:30am to 4:30pm - BOOKINGS CLOSED

Taught online via Zoom

Always wanted to write but never known where to start?

Write regularly but feel your writing needs a creative kickstart?

This practical and fun one-day workshop offers you the opportunity to explore creative writing possibilities with one of Evolution’s most experienced and successful writing tutors. 

We'll consider:

How to form a regular writing habit

Ideas on good starting points for writers

Who’s writing this anyway? Reflections on point of view and voice 

The workshop will include three Zoom sessions interspersed with creative writing exercises done off-line, and the group size will be limited to allow everyone the opportunity to receive feedback and encouragement. Tutor Max always aims to create a relaxed and supportive environment in her workshops. 

It is open to fiction and non-fiction writers, or would-be-writers, of all levels of experience. Absolute beginners and experienced writers are all very welcome!

I liked reading and hearing our work.  The activities were fab for homework.  The readings from texts inspirational and relevant.  The other students respectful and kind and interesting.  Max offered incisive feedback and was an inspiration.  The notes sent in email were excellent.

I liked the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that we were set homework which set a goal every week.

Knowledgeable tutor!  Constructive critisism and time for everyones workto be heard and critiqued.  Useful to state goals and check-in with them at the end.  Also to remember we are inventing the truth.  Such a useful, freeing idea!  Avoiding perfectionism and being flexible allows more flow.

Positive environment, great teacher, interesting group.

Very encouraging, constructive, teacher and group.  Max very positive and encouraging.  Different types of writing and group members.
