City of Stories Home writing workshop with Helen Bowell

Libraries

In this online workshop you’ll have the opportunity to be creative, craft your writing, and explore the theme of home in short stories - all in a safe and friendly environment.

The workshop is for people who want to give writing a go and for those already writing. It is primarily for London residents (please see FAQs on Eventvrite for more info on this).

Workshop participants from London will be able to enter their short stories on the theme of home to the City of Stories Home competition. Winners will be published in the City of Stories Home Anthology, take part in a StoryLab masterclass and read their work at events in their local library in June 2022.

This workshop will be relaxed, there will be a 10 minute break half-way through each workshop, you are welcome to either have your video on or off. Workshop outlines can be provided in advance by request, and they can help with specific access needs too. Please email [email protected]
