What do we do?

Participants read from their own work, either a poem, short story or extract from a novel or play and then receive feedback from the group.  The emphasis in the workshop is on constructive feedback.  Participants are welcome to attend without reading themselves but you’ll have much more fun if you read yourself. A fee of €5 per person (€3 concessions) is charged to cover costs. The fee for the prose meetings is €6 (€4 concession).
