'Picture This' Creative Writing Workshops


Join Joanna Will, local author and scriptwriter, for these fun and informal creative writing workshops for adults. Suitable for complete beginners, the workshops will draw inspiration from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Seaton Station and each workshop will focus on a different aspect of creative writing: poetry, mindful writing and story writing. Refreshments and materials will be provided and no creative writing experience is necessary. Booking essential.

Joanna Will is an experienced teacher and teacher trainer who has been running Black Dog creative writing courses in Dorset and Devon for the past ten years. She has written three successful film scripts that were shot in Southern Africa and is the author of the local guidebook, Lesser-Known Lyme Regis
