Budding writers are being given a chance to share their Essex stories and see their work in print thanks to a new Essex-wide creative writing project.
The workshop at Grays Library is a way to help you get started in writng about Essex. There are other workshops from may 2016 onwards which are listed at www.essexbelongstous.org. The workshop lasts 2 hours and is totally FREE! We know there are budding writers out there because the library accepts lots of books written and published by residents.
So, if you like writing or just want to have a go at writing, then an Arts Council-funded creative writing project, Essex Belongs To Us, could be right up your street. There is the opportunity to enter your work too.
This is a way of developing your creative skills and creating writing opportunities. One of the end products will be an exciting Essex Belongs To Us book featuring the stories, poems and non-fiction submitted by local writers.
The deadline for entries is November 2016. The project is open to all writers aged 16 + who live in Essex. More information about how to enter is on www.essexbelongstous.org.
