Six-week writing course with Anita Maccallum Literature and Books


With a focus on developing your work and strengthening your own voice, using a range of individual exercises and pair and group work.

A small supportive writing group led by Anita Maccallum, award-winning writer and facilitator with over twenty years experience.

What previous participants say:

"Anita's courses are different from others - non-fluffy, down-to-earth and grounded. Small groups with personal attention, acceptance and respect for your writing wherever you're at."

"I would highly recommend Anita’s workshop, whether you are new to writing, or have many years experience. You can always unravel and create something new. Anita’s writing courses allow me the space to play, to create and to remind myself that I can write, just for the pure joy of writing."

"This is my first workshop-type thing & it felt very safe & inviting, but also just the right amount of challenging!"

Date & time: Six x Thursday evenings, 7-9pm, starting 16 January 2020.
Cost: £160 (£140 low waged, £120 concession)
Venue: south Bristol
