Vanessa (think Yoga class), Cynan (think Judo class), or perhaps even a guest tutor will lead you into lots of tried and tested games and exercises to inspire and get the creative ideas flowing. You will write madly all evening. 


Create new characters, voices, settings, start new stories, draft complete Flashes - who knows? 


Bring a glass of wine, your supper, whatever you like, in addition to laptop/paper and pen - however you work best. 

The main aim of the evening is to give you the excuse to write and some tactics to help you while we do.


Per session - £35

Series of four - £100

"Joining Vanessa’s workshops was the best investment to grow my writing confidence and the creative games pushed me to achieve top marks in my writing degree and get published. Join in and see where it takes you!" ~ Rosie Mowatt, (Grister!)

If you'd like a taste of the sort of inspiration Writing Mill Grist can provide, you can now order 51 and a Half  - a collection of ideas and games arising from the evenings.
