How I Write: Abi Morgan
Q&A and Reading
Do you have a life writing project that needs attention? Perhaps you need some technical help, are nervous about committing life to the page, or curious about navigating the industry in general? Join bestselling writer Cathy Rentzenbrink and publisher Francesca Main for an intensive ‘Arvon in a day’ creative writing course focusing on memoir and writing from life.
Brought to you in partnership with the brilliant Quay Words, this day of Masterclasses will get you writing in a supportive and friendly atmosphere and leave you full of knowledge and ideas, with a plan of how to carry on with your book. The day will include two intense and interactive workshops with Cathy and Francesca which will be designed to generate new work as well as to reinvigorate your current project, followed by an ‘in conversation’ with Cathy and Francesca and a Q&A session at the end of the day when you will have the opportunity to ask questions about your own work. Writers of all experience levels are welcome!
Please note: This Arvon Life-Writing Day in partnership with Quay Words will take place at Exeter Custom House from 10:00 to 16:45. See access tab to learn more about the venue.
