2 events at Brighouse Library in August

There are two local writing events at Brighouse Library this August:

Writing workshop with R.L.Royle

Tuesday 28th August 2:00pm – 5:00pm, Brighouse Library

Tickets: £6

R L Royle is a professional author based in Brighouse, Yorkshire.
Writing books from the age of seven, Rebecca swapped her pens and typewriters for a computer at the age of seventeen to pen her first novel, Lucy’s Monster, published in 2006. After her second published novel Eleven Terrible Months was released in hardback, Rebecca sold everything she owned and left the UK to travel Asia, Europe and North America for nine months, taking leather books to record day-to-day journals of the adventures that were to change her profoundly and inspire future novels.
Upon her return to the UK, Rebecca set up independent creative writing courses that ran for two years. With her current novel now close to being finished, Rebecca has shut the Town Hall doors to her writing classes to concentrate fully on her career as an author once more, excited about sharing her most mature and challenging piece of work yet.
Her three-hour workshop to be held at Brighouse Library is a one-off. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
Reviews from White Rose Creative Writing:

A really enjoyable course with a fun, relaxed atmosphere… Rebecca is a teacher with limitless enthusiasm who really inspires you and helps you to believe in your work. If you’ve ever wanted to give creative writing a go this is a perfect place to start.

A very inspirational course, that both pushes you out of your comfort zone then reels you back in, learning so much on the way. Rebecca is a fantastic teacher, sharing her work and her experiences, which inspires you to want to write more and more. Wish we could have stayed longer!
