The gift that helps you write poetry while doing the chores
Author and creative writing guru Bridget Whelan has chosen a cute, creative gift that will help the recipient enjoy the fun of creating poetry or stories while they're cooking or cleaning up the kitchen: a Fridge Magnet Poetry Set!
Bridget says: 'I'd like a fridge poetry magnet set (& I'd like a poet to come round and show me how to get the best out of it...)?'
Bridget has led numerous workshops on all aspects of writing, as well as publishing Back to Creative Writing School, a fab book full of exercises. She'll be teaching at our Writing Conference on March 12 - another great gift idea for the writer in your life...
The New Year is a great time to focus on your resolution to write a novel or screenplay, or to network with other writers, agents and publishers. We have the answer, with two special early bird rates on brand new 1-day courses being held in Brighton in January and March 2016: they're designed to be kickstarts for new and experienced writers.
Our 1-day TV & Radio Course will help you write that script in 2016. It's at the fabulously glam Hotel Pelirocco on Saturday January 23: our two tutors Sue Teddern and Hannah Vincent are experts in broadcast drama and comedy, and their great course is available for £85 till December 21. While our first Write by the Beach conference features best-selling authors and top agents offering 10+ sessions, plus a networking lunch, for £85 till January 24. That's in the beautiful Angel House, right by the sea. Both fabulous venues are within easy reach of Brighton Railway Station (less than 1 hour from London by train) so you could make a whole weekend of it!
