FREE online interactive experimental writing workshop

Interested in being experimental with creative writing? 18-30 in Yorkshire or nearby?
If this sounds like you, then join, poet Vicky Morris, for a fun writing workshop [2.30 to 4.30pm Sunday 31st May] exploring ideas about writing in experimental ways.

The workshop, although geared towards poetry, will work for fiction writers too and is focused around submitting to the Streetcake Experimental Writing Prize (open to 18-30s across England) closing on 1st July.

The workshop is for young writers living in the Yorkshire region (but we’re happy to hear from anyone nearby who doesn’t usually have this kind of opportunity).

No experience is needed – you just need a tablet or computer with an internet connection and to virtually turn up! It’s not a requirement of the workshop that participants need to be visible on video (or to use audio) on the Crowdcast platform.

Vicky is a great teacher and will make this session fun and stimulating with some fab ideas to take away and work on. Don’t worry about your level of experience, or how confident you feel, just come along to brush up on your writing skills and get inspired!

This is a FREE online, interactive workshop for 18-30-year-olds living in and around Yorkshire | Date: 2.30 to 4.30pm Sunday 31st May via Crowdcast

We’re particularly keen to hear from young writers from under-represented groups and all levels are welcome. To book, email us at info@hivesouthyorkshire.com with: your name, age, location, postcode and interests and we’ll get back to you soon!
