Mothership Writers is a free year-long programme of writing workshops for new mothers in Bristol, starting in April 2019. Over the course of 25 fortnightly sessions held at two city venues, we’ll work towards creating an anthology: a frontline dispatch of new motherhood. No writing experience? No worries! Workshops will be led by Bristol-based novelist and creator of Mothership Writers Emylia Hall.
