Brewery Lane Writers’ Weekend 2019
with writers Angela T. Carr and Enda Wyley
Friday 26th, Saturday 27th, Sunday 28th April 2019
Mornings will include workshops filled with guidance and prompt-based creative writing
exercises, as well as stimulation from the work of established writers. You will be inspired
and encouraged to create new work, share your writing and receive feedback from the tutors
and the group. In the afternoons, you will have the chance to discuss your work with Angela
and Enda in one-to-one tutorials and benefit from some self-directed writing time.
The workshop concludes on Sunday afternoon with an opportunity to share the work you’ve
developed over the weekend. This is an enjoyable, relaxed creative writing course aimed at
beginner and emerging writers, that will provide you with new ideas and techniques to add to
your writer’s toolkit!
