The Kitchen Table Writer - Free Writing

Alice Jolly says "Freewriting is a vital tool for total beginners but is equally useful for more experienced writers. Anyone can do it, anywhere.  It cures writer’s block and perennial procrastination.  It silences even the most vicious inner critic.  Just keep freewriting for a few months and you may find you’ve written a novel.  Come along and learn how to do it."

She will be holding a four piece workshop where she will take you through the steps of becoming a novelist, playwright or a screenplay writer! The four workshops will be Free Writing - 11:30-12:30 - Workshop tent 3 and Structure - 13:00-14:00 - Workshop tent 3 on Saturday. Making a Scene - 11:30-12:30 - Workshop tent 2 and Re-writing - 13:00-14:00 - Workshop tent 2 on Sunday!
