This FREE Workshop is led by Tim Cowen, who when not being manager of Woodlands Community is a writer, poet and performer.
A long standing campaigner on social and environmental justice, Tim writes stories, poems and comedy.
Tim’s novel Banquet of the Beasts is a ‘truly orginal story which mixes politics, fantasy and wonderful descriptions of the natural world.’
No previous writing experience is necessary for this fun and interactive writing workshop. Weather permitting we’ll be writing both in our community garden and meeting room, so bring some suitable outdoor clothing as well as pen and paper.
