Creative Writing Workshop

Bishop Auckland Town Hall invites budding writers to hone their skills by attending a creative writing workshop later this month.

The event will be hosted by Richard W. Hardwick, whose debut novel – ‘Kicked Out’ – became Waterstone’s Recommended Read and whose second book – ‘Andalucia’ – was described by Booker Prize winner Pat Barker as ‘inspiring’.

Richard operates his own publishing company, ‘Lapwing Books’, and has taught creative writing in County Durham’s prisons for six years.  His two hour workshop is designed to help participants see their own environments and communities, and their relationship to these, in a fresh and revealing way.

Following the workshop there will a one-hour question and answer session where participants can learn more about both writing and publishing.

The workshop will take place Monday 20th January from 6pm – 9pm. The event is free to attend but a ticket is required, places are limited places so book early to avoid disappointment.
