Digital Taster Course: Writing sparkling non-fiction

Fri 18 March 2022
Tutor / Horatio Clare
Course Fee / From £12 per person
Genre / Non-Fiction
Language / English

12.00 pm– 1.30 pm Friday 18 March 2022

Join Horatio Clare for an introduction to writing creative non-fiction on life, on place and on people. We will look at how to turn the events of our everyday lives into works of sparkling non-fiction which others will enjoy reading. The workshop will last an hour, but time has been set aside to settle in at the beginning to ask questions, and for discussions with your fellow writers at the end.

The Tŷ Newydd taster courses series will offer a whistle-stop tour of various genres and themes in both English and Welsh, to continue to inspire your writing during the winter months. Participant numbers for each taster course will be capped at 20, and the course will be delivered through the video platform Zoom. We hope to welcome you to Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre when we reopen our doors in 2022, where we offer a programme of day-long, weekend and week-long residential courses at our beautiful house in Llanystumdwy.
