Creative Writing Workshops

Venue Online
Admission Free
Start Time 14:00
End Time 15:30

Wirral based literary Arts organisation, Read Now Write Now, has been awarded funding from Arts Council England to run free online creative writing workshops for adults living in Liverpool.

Starting in January 2021, author Charlie Lea will run six creative writing courses, each lasting 8 weeks, in partnership with Liverpool Libraries and Cheshire West & Chester Libraries.

The course runs from 11 January-14 February, the first class is held 2pm-3.30pm. Times for later dates are listed below.

At the end of each writing course participants will have the opportunity to submit a short story to be included in a published anthology that will be placed in both Liverpool and Cheshire West Libraries catalogues.

The courses will be inspired by the Libraries Connected and BBC Arts led campaign ‘Novels that shaped our World’ and Charlie will use examples from some of these novels to guide the writers on how to, amongst other things, set the scene, build characterisation, plot and plan their stories.

Given the current situation, all courses will take place online via Zoom rather than at library venues.  There will be a maximum of 15 free places on each course and registration will be taken on a first come, first served basis.


8-week courses from w/b 11 January 2021

  • Monday afternoon: 2pm to 3.30pm
  • Tuesday evening: 7pm to 8.30pm
  • Wednesday afternoon: 2pm to 3.30pm
  • Thursday morning: 10am to 11.30am
  • Friday morning: 10am to 11.30am
  • Saturday afternoon: 2pm to 3.30pm

All interested people need to do is choose one of the above courses and then email to book on and register.
