Place on the Page: a Creative Writing Workshop

A free writing workshop to put place on the page, meet like-minded writers, and learn practical tips for getting your words out there.

July 20, 2024
Brandon Country Park

Have you ever walked through a forest, or sat by a river, and wished you could capture the feeling, the experience of being there, on the page?

Are you already writing and need support and advice to get your words out there?

Join this free creative writing workshop for fun exercises to capture a sense of place, meet like-minded writers, and learn practical techniques for honing your words for publication.

Everyone is welcome, no matter what kind of writing you do, your skill level or experience, no matter whether you call yourself a writer or just like to play with words in your spare time. Writing can be a lonely activity, so we want to create a space for it within a wonderful network like-minded people. We also want to provide support for you to get your words out into the world so others can see your creativity and insight.

As well as really practical tips, we will be offering a really exciting opportunity for publication at the end of the workshop.

Food and Drink

Drinks and biscuits will be provided (no writing could happen without tea and biscuits!)

Brandon Country Park also has a café on-site.

What to Wear and Bring

Please bring something to write on, whether notepad and pen or laptop, whatever works best for you. There will be a very short walk outside in the park (the terrain shouldn’t be tricky) so please wear footwear you will be comfortable in and weather-appropriate extras as needed (suncream/hat, raincoat/brolly – you know England in July)!

Access and Inclusion

Parking at the venue is the Orchard pay and display car park which can be paid for in cash, by card, or on the RingGo app.

If you have specific accessibility requirements, please get in touch.

The route we will take as part of the workshop will be tailored to suit the needs of the group.
