Online Zoom Event

Date: Monday 1st February 2021

Time: 6-7.30pm

Creative Writing with Gems in the Dunes

 A course of 3 creative writing workshops inspired by the beautiful Sefton Coast.

The workshops are free and will be held online by live video.


Informative. Relaxing. Inspiring.

Learn fascinating information about the creatures, plants, history, and secrets of the dunes from Gems in the Dunes experts Fiona and Andrew. Woven throughout will be creative writing activities with Hazel Mutch to bring the landscape to life and allow you to connect with it from the comfort of your own home.

Come away with a deeper knowledge of the coast, the fruits of your own creativity, and writing tips and ideas. If you enjoy writing you’ll be inspired. If you’re new to writing you’ll surprise yourself. You will be writing for yourself and for the enjoyment of it, although there will also be a chance for anyone to share their writing on a purely voluntary basis.
