Most splendiferous news this morning from Hay-on-Wye!
After days of research and talking with countless helpful folk in and around town, we finally secured a venue to run not one, but two Creative Writing workshops during the Hay Festival. Not just any venue, but perhaps the preeminent spot in all of Hay-on-Wye:
"Richard Booth’s Bookshop is the largest bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the Town of Books, and the cultural hub of the town. Founded in 1962 by Richard Booth, who made Hay world-famous as the capital of the second-hand book trade, an elegant façade with its glazed animalier tiles leads to a vast three-floor emporium with hundreds of thousands of secondhand, antiquarian and new books."Read more about this famous bookshop founded by the "King of Hay" without whose contribution Hay-on-Wye would not be what it is today.
So, as promised in yesterday's post, here are the workshop details ...
I'll be leading two two-hour Creative Writing workshops on Thursday, 7 June. The first, a morning workshop, will run from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The second workshop will run from 2 to 4 pm. There's no need to attend both as the intention is the same for both workshops; that is, to help you Find Your Writing Voice while Freeing the Writer Within. The workshop fee is £30, and booking is essential.
Click here to book your place. As each workshop is limited to 12 participants, and the places are likely to go fast, I'd recommend booking right away to secure your place.
During the workshops we'll be nestled in a lovely part of Richard Booth's Bookshop, the first-floor space with the large windows (pictured above) overlooking Lion Street, smack-dab in the center of Hay-on-Wye. The exact address is 44 Lion Street, and the post code is HR3 5AA.
We look forward to having you join us, and perhaps a friend, family member or other loved one. And thank you, too, for helping us to spread word of these writing workshops.
With warm regards,
