Hebden Bridge Writers Events - September

Anna Turner has forwarded me the information on the following two events:

Sunday 9 September

Hebden Bridge Library



11am – 1pm

What on earth is a Writer-in-Residence?

And how can you become one?!

This 2-hour workshop is for writers with some published credits who want to find out about the strange world of being a writer-in-residence.   Char March is a local award-winning poet, playwright and fiction writer, and has been writer-in-residence for a wide range of organisations including:  Leeds Hospitals;  Ty Newydd (the National Writers’ Centre for Wales);  The Watershed Landscape Project (based on the Pennine moors);  Hull University Business School;  and she is currently negotiating three more writer-in-residence contracts.

Char will take you through the benefits and pitfalls of being a writer-in-residence, and a series of exercises designed to help you find out what makes you tick as a writer, and prepare you for grabbing the next writer-in-residence that comes along!
