Creative writing workshops

I have been teaching creative writing in a university setting for thirteen years and helped dozens of MA students and other new writers shape, refine and edit their novels and illustrated nonfiction texts for adults and young people. I’d be delighted to tailor workshops of between one hour and a full day to your group’s writing needs. These sessions are designed to generate new work in a friendly, supportive environment.

My next ‘Writing: Naturally’ all-day workshop takes place on Saturday 5 October 2019 from 10.30-4pm at St Faith’s Hall in St Cross, Winchester. The cost is £45 and includes a light lunch. The day consists of a series of guided writing exercises designed to inspire fresh ideas and generate new work, with an emphasis on character, place and emotion. Suitable for fiction writers at all levels of experience and working in any genre.

What attendees have said

‘A very valuable and helpful session on starting and generating high quality fiction. This session will definitely guide the structure and writing of my next story.’ Workshop attendee Peter Owen

‘I really enjoyed the pace at which Judith led us firmly but freely through inspirational exercises. I saw new ways of expressing characters and point of view, all wrapped up in a beginning, middle and end feel to the day!’ Workshop attendee Emma Latham

Did the teacher say ‘Resonance’! This course will resonate with me as a writer. So enjoyed it!’ Workshop attendee Rita Antoinette Borg

Reader reports

If you would like a reader’s report on your manuscript, or a report on the first three chapters plus synopsis only, or some manuscript development support, please send me a message via the contact form outlining number of words and genre, along with an email address and a brief note about the type of support you are seeking. We can then discuss your needs and I’ll be happy to provide a quote. If I don’t think I’m the right person for your project, I will say so.
