Hi-Ho!

To tie-in with the launch of our collection of adult short stories later this month, some of the writers will be hosting free workshops in Portsmouth – and there is a brilliant reason to attend them.
I won’t be there! 🙂
So if you are sick of the sight of me – I know I am! – this is a perfect opportunity to get yourself down – if you live North of the island – or up – if you are a crustacean or mermaid – to Southsea.
Neil Gaiman Quote
Here are the details. So, please get involved & spread the word.
Both workshops are free, so come and meet some of the writers who will feature in the forthcoming book. They are much more entertaining, trustworthy, intelligent and have far better bowel control than I could ever dream of… ahem.
If any of our community workshops below sounds like your kind of thing then we’d love to see you there.
Workshop 1Epic Fairy Tales & Mysteries at Our Own Doors:
This creative writing workshop is for the 60+ – if you have I.D and are 55+ we can squeeze you in on the quiet… just keep it on the down low.
