Covid 19 - People have been finding creative writing extremely helpful during this strange and stressful time. I continued to run my weekly Thursday evening group by Zoom for 15 months, hardly missing a week and everyone, including me, found it became a hi-light of their week, or even saved their sanity at times! Once people were allowed to travel to self-catering properties in parts of the UK we paused for the summer, as used to be  normal in pre-Covid days, and will start again,  face-to-face, person, in mid-October. My Write On group met monthly rather than 6-weekly over the same period and is still doing so with hybrid Zoom/face-to-face. See ‘workshop news’
I have a space in Write On and a few in Writing from Life, with a free trial session for the latter on 14 October

My writing holiday at Ashburnham Place last summer in June was cancelled as the venue could not have guests because of Covid but the one from October 19-23 2020 ran!! It managed full accordance with the government regulations to keep up to 30 people safe which felt strange but, in view of what was to come, very welcome. Another is scheduled there for October 5 - 8 2021. I’m so looking forward to that. It is now full but, if interested do enquire about a waiting list via their website or phone.
