***Please note: this is an online event***
Running every morning from 10am between Mon 19 – Fri 23 October.
Join writer and theatre maker, Becci Sharrock for a daily prompt and guided writing time. These will be delivered via Zoom at 10am each day, lasting between 15 and 20 minutes, giving you the chance to start your day with some free writing on everything from character to theme, descriptive writing and style. All participants will have their audio and video off so that you can focus on the prompts and your writing time. We’ll also send you instructions to change your settings so that you can only see Becci on screen.
You can join in live at 10am each morning or catch up with the prompts on-line afterwards.
