One Day Workshops
This charming Elizabethan manor house was home to Jane Austen's brother, Edward. She spent part of her life in one of the cottages on his estate and often walked up to 'The Great House' to enjoy time with her family, surrounded by idyllic Hampshire countryside. Home to a unique collection of early women's writing, Chawton House hosts an increasing number of events of both literary and general interest. This is a unique and inspiring location for a one-day writing retreat.
For the health of both staff and visitors, Chawton House is currently closed due to COVID-19, but creative writing workshops are still available on Zoom!
Chawton House Virtual Creative Writing Workshops
Following the success of the Literary Lockdown and Garden Festival, I will be hosting another series of lighthearted Zoom creative writing workshops. No experience is necessary; all you need is a notebook and pen. Each workshop runs for an hour and a half and numbers are limited. £7.50 per workshop.
Memoir and Family History - Saturday 22nd August at 11am or Sunday 23rd August at 5pm
Is there an episode in your life you want to capture on paper? Perhaps there's an ancestor whose story shouldn't be forgotten. Or have you researched the family tree and want to bring it together in narrative form? This workshop will provide tips on how to research and write these personal stories.
Writing Historical Fiction - Saturday 26th September at 11am or Sunday 27th September at 5pm
Have you been inspired to write a Regency drama? Or perhaps you're fascinated by the Elizabethans or Victorians. This workshop will consider the elements that make successful historical fiction and how you make that slice of history come alive.
