Creative Writing Workshops – Free Taster Sessions

allenAllen Ashley has several free “taster” sessions lined up for his writing workshops. Each of these is being held at a different venue. Depending upon the take-up, Allen hopes to follow the sessions with a regular group starting a few days or a couple of weeks after the taster session. So, if you live in or near north London and you want to take up or return to creative writing, get yourself along to one of his workshops!

Attendance is free at these Ways into Writing one hour taster sessions. Attendees will need to bring a pen, paper, a board or notepad to lean on, plus their imagination. Allen’s workshops are practical – you will be writing within 5 minutes.

If you want to reserve a place or if you have any queries, such as how to get to the venue, please email Allen on allenashley-writer (at)
