Happy New Writing You!

Time to WRITE!

Time to WRITE!

January is a month of mixed feelings. There are those who feel that it is a time to be positive and upbeat, and there are others who become immersed in the misery of cold, dark mornings. However you feel, it is always good to write.

One thing I like to do in January is to look at the year ahead and think what I’d like to achieve where my writing is concerned. Some are promises to myself set in stone, but others are more like ‘There’s the goal post and if I aim well, then maybe…’

My second book Dominoes is being stitched and glossed at the publishers as I speak, with a launch set for late March. It’s hard to think about other things but I will…

Carousel Writers’ Centre has had an amazing second year of writers’ workshops and classes and we are going into a third year with so many exciting days on offer.

Starting on Tuesday the 20th of January, there will be eight weeks of creative writing workshops.

Our Children’s classes are ongoing all year in Knocklyon.
