Join us for this exciting creative writing workshop with former Cheshire Poet Laureate, published author, playwright and experienced workshop facilitator, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy says:

Creative writing – ‘These Boots Were Made For Walking’

Date(s) 11 October 2022

Join us for this exciting creative writing workshop with former Cheshire Poet Laureate, published author, playwright and experienced workshop facilitator, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy says:

“It’s good to look outside the perceived technicalities of writing sometimes and just think about a random theme. This workshop takes the theme of boots and shoes – who is wearing them, are they new or worn out, what colour or style, how much did they cost, where are they going? There are many questions we could ask the writer and each answer leads to a story.”

Times: 10:30am – 4pm in the Tenant’s Hall Foyer
