3 hour workshop
Join Chalk the Sun on the first Saturday of every month for this drop in Writers' Room and get some professional insight into what you have been writing.
Topics vary from month to month and cover all aspects of creative writing from basic scene setting and character creating to more advanced topics such as handling voice and viewpoint or interweaving plot and theme.
Students can ask to cover specific areas like poetry or writing a radio play. Guest tutors such as crime novelist Claire McGowan or children's editor Simona Sideri sometimes teach these sessions.
Now you can
- Set the scene for your story;
- Develop credible characters;
- Get professional feedback on your work.

About your host, Chalk the Sun
Creative writing courses, sharing brilliant ideas with other imaginative people.
Ardella Jones heads up a team of writers, editors and producers who teach creative writing with a difference. Tired of trying to teach creative writing courses in dreary Adult Education Institutions, she set up her own school with fellow writer Jo Hepplewhite where they could teach in a relaxed environment without the bureaucracy and next to a nice bar with comfy sofas.
Chalk the Sun don’t just ‘thank the group for sharing’, they provide constructive criticism and inspiring tuition whether you want to experiment with fiction or drama for the first time, or you want to publish a novel with a view to publication.
Bring a pen and notebook, tablet or laptop. Our 4th May workshop will be run by novelists and screenwriter Simon Lewis. It will be a practical workshop on story, plot and theme. If you have a brief story outline, elevator pitch, for your works in progress bring it to class, if not don't worry just absorb Simon's pearls of wisdom for future use.
