Write Good Write Bad with Joe Bennett

Write good Write bad - A writing workshop with Joe Bennett

An introduction to the craft of writing. There is no recipe for writing well. But there are certain things that good writers do and bad ones don't. In this Saturday morning workshop we'll look at extracts from a range of writers, and try to define what makes the good ones good and the bad ones bad. Bring whatever you like to write with and a willingness to laugh.

Where: LAF, corner Sumner Road and Oxford Street, Lyttelton. When: Saturday August 15th. 9 am - 12.30pm. Arrive early to find parking. We'll break for half an hour in the middle to get coffee from the market.
