The Write Time - New Creative Writing Course

Starting in September 2021, author Charlie Lea will run six free online writing workshops for adults, each lasting 8 weeks, in partnership with Halton Libraries, St Helens Libraries and Livewire Libraries. At the end of the workshops participants will have the opportunity to submit a short story, which can be included into a published anthology that will be placed in all three libraries’ catalogues and further have an extract of their story read out and uploaded onto YouTube.

Places are limited, so please book as soon as possible, if you’re interested. 

To join, simply choose one of the 8 week Zoom courses to attend:

  • Monday afternoon: starting 6th September 2pm to 3.30pm
  • Tuesday evening: starting 7th September 7pm to 8.30pm
