Go Weird or Go Home

Learn how to bring the strange into your stories with Northern Soul’s Northern Writer of the Year, Gaynor Jones, who has a keen eye for the weird and wonderful in contemporary fiction. You’ll discuss curious stories, workshop fresh ideas and create new work in a friendly, supportive and slightly strange environment. All levels of writing experience welcome.

“A perfect theme that really delivered. The writing prompts were inspiring, and we packed so much into 2 hours.” - previous participant feedback
