8 WEEK WRITERS' STRETCH & TONE
This workshop repeats throughout the year as a place for writers to continually hone their craft, not through endless discussion, but through the practice of writing itself. Writing suggestions encourage participants to experiment and play – in the sessions – with different forms, voices and styles. In this process we learn how to read and listen to our own and to others' work more closely, and learn how to give and receive feedback to strengthen our writing skills.

In addition to these writing opportunities, time is also made available to review and analyse participant manuscripts in a range of forms – from poems and short stories, to screenplay excerpts and works still finding their form. And the more diverse group the better. Advanced writers can still learn plenty from beginner writers' fresh, new approaches, while different ages and national backgrounds level the playing field, keeping our focus on simply what works, and what matters, in good writing.

This workshop is an ideal opportunity for participants to both generate new work, and to revise and edit previous work samples. At the end of 8 weeks we can't guarantee you'll win any writing races, but you'll certainly have stronger writer muscles, and will be ready to take on new writing challenges.
