Do you have a writer in your life? Then read on for fantastic gift ideas that will make you a literary hero...
The gift if your writing is powered by tea or coffee
Screen and radio scriptwriter Sue Teddern recommends the perfect t-shirt for writers who rely on hot drinks to get the creative juices flowing.
She says: 'What every writer needs at the laptop coalface: a T-shirt proclaiming the importance of tea in the creative process. I'm more of a coffee kinda gal but a beverage is a beverage, especially if someone else makes it for you. '
Alternatively, if, like Sue, you love coffee, then Brighton and Hove's own Small Batch Coffee Roasters offer a fabulous Coffee Club subscription: fresh-ground coffee sent every single fortnight for three months. They feature differeent blends, and tasting notes. Perfect for writers who rely on caffeine for their most profound thinking...
Sue will be sharing her incredible knowledge of how to write for broadcast in our first one-day TV&Radio event on January 23: that would make an amazing gift for writers who want to make 2016 the year of the script.
Our 1-day TV & Radio Course will be held 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.
Or if your ambitions are wider than broadcast, 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!
