Curious about writing but not sure where to start? Full of ideas that somehow never make it to the page? In search of a bit of gentle prodding to keep your pen moving?

Join us at Spilling the Ink, a beginner's Writing Circle where each week we explore new ways of letting our creative cats out of their bags. Suitable for beginners and writers who love beginnings. Limited to 8 participants per group.

Want to test the waters?

Come to a free taster workshop for some writing and responding similar to what we will do during a Writing Circle session.  The taster session will be on 18 October, 14.00-15.30, Rock Road Library Community Room.  Register your interest in the taster session here and I'll get in touch with details. Map to Rock Road Libary, Cambridge. Stagecoach buses Citi 1 and Citi 3 have stops nearby.
